1L diversity position

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Dec 19, 2012 12:50 am

Hey,

I'd appreciate some tips on how to research firms. I'm applying for 1L summer diversity positions, but I have no idea how to research a firm's 'specialty', so that I can talk about what the firm actually does. I have read the NALP "Practice Areas" section, which basically tells me how many lawyers are working on each area.

Any tips are GREATLY appreciated!

You don't need to know what they're doing right this instant (unless it's headline grabbing stuff like Apple v. Samsung). You should be able to find prominent previous cases on the attorney bio pages.
