NLG and BigLaw

Postby sweetfrenchtoast » Sat Oct 19, 2013 5:55 pm

Are there [a lot of] NLG members in BigLaw? Could getting involved with NLG hurt job prospects in the private sector?

Also any ramifications on NLG members looking into government jobs?

I doubt biglaw would care and you could always leave it off your resume.

I was never asked about student orgs in any interview. I just doubt anyone cares.

On the chapter board and was asked about it multiple times during interviews. I doubt it ever hurt and sure it helped a few times. I ended up with V5/V10 offers.
