Milbank Tweed for litigation

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 11, 2012 12:28 pm

I have an interview with them coming up. I know they do a lot of transactional/corporate work, but they also have a fairly large litigation department. I don't have any experience in a corporate/banking setting so I can't really think of a believable reason to say I'm interested in that, and I am legitimately interested in litigation. For the litigation/transactional question, would it be a bad idea to just say that I haven't learned enough about transactional to make a decision yet, and then talk about why I like Milbank's litigation department and how I have an interest in litigation. Or perhaps I should just fake it and make up a reason for why I am very interested in transactional?

Also, can anyone give me a good stock answer for why someone would be interested in corporate/transactional? Thanks!!

Something along those lines is usually the standard answer, sometimes also saying "but I definitely want to try corporate because X . . . " However, if I recall, Millbank might be one of the ones that actually assigns you to a group/uses some kind of rotation system for the summer. If that's the case, and you think you want to be a litigator, then say you want to do litigation; otherwise you will look like you didn't do your homework. I would research the specific details of their summer program just to be sure (and for any firm with which you interview, of course).
