Help me choose a practice area

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Oct 13, 2012 9:00 pm

Need some help with this.

I'm thankful to have a choice of summer offers. However, the choice basically requires me to choose right now between transactional or litigation. Basically, I dont know what I want.

Please help me choose.

No. I thought maybe some discussion about the different practice areas would help me out.

Is it any more specific than lit vs. corp?

Can you share any information about what you find interesting/what you dislike? It's an incredibly vague and broad topic that you're asking right now.

*is smart enough to get top grades at a top school*

*feigns having trouble figuring out how to choose a practice area even though most 3rd graders could choose between lit and corp without the help of a career adviser*

*fails at trying to subtly brag*

Lol this is not at all a humblebrag. I have to choose between 2 firms, one of which is strong in litigation and the other which is strong in transactional. They don't have big summer class sizes and therefore don't want to name them. I have no idea which one to choose. I don't know what area I want to practice right now and do not really know what transactional work entails or what type of personality is better suited for it. Therefore, I am asking for some help.

Etc.... anyway, at the end of the day are you looking forward to the prospect of spending hours doing research and writing and ultimately arguing in court, or do you want to read for detail and strategize for businesses? Some research might help you.
