litigation experience, transactional cb

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 25, 2012 1:49 am

my resume includes numerous judicial internships, i am a poli sci major, and i have some callbacks at primarily transactional firms. Is my inexperience in business going to ruin me on callbacks? How do i answer the "why transactional?"

No. Nobody has transactional experience after 1L. Not a requirement.

It's not an issue in the slightest.

Are you sure they even want you to answer "why trans"? Even if they do more trans than lit, maybe they're interested in you because of your lit experience.

Not that you've mentioned any notable lit experience. Not sure what you said in your screener.
