Cravath or Covington?

Postby HLBE689 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 9:32 pm

Trying to decide between Covington in DC or Cravath for 2014 Summer Associate Position. I am interested in corporate/regulatory/transactional work. Not interested in litigation and in the long term I see myself either going in house or going into academia if the opportunity is there.

Anyone have any thoughts or experience with these firms? I am so torn on which to choose!

Do Cravath if you want corporate and Covington if you want regulatory. Or decide based on city.

Okay - sorry I was not more specific. I am mostly interested in health care regulatory work or corporate work with health care industry. Obviously I don't know exactly what I will like best given that I do not have actual experience at a firm yet in this area.

Almost positive you will have no way of specializing in "health care industry" corporate work at Cravath. In fact, there is probably only a very small possibility that you would even be staffed on a healthcare merger or healthcare related IPO within your first few years.

If you're serious about wanting to focus more on the industry than the kind of work, you should take Covington.
