From BigLaw to public interest to BigLaw. AMA.

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Nov 16, 2013 5:13 am

HYS, COA clerkship. Started out @ V15 BigLaw post-clerkship. Left for public interest (staff attorney position at a nonprofit). That's all pretty ordinary. About a year ago, I left public interest ... to return to BigLaw. There's the unusual part. Taking questions.

Did you stay in the same general practice area, or did you jump around?

1. How long did you work at the nonprofit?
2. Why did you leave for public interest?
3. What made you want to return to biglaw?
4. What kind of firm did you return to? (Whatever you're comfortable revealing: Vault range, location, size, etc.)
5. Did you have a book of business?

Thanks for doing this.

What year roughly are you coming back in as?
What is your timeframe for finding out if you made partner or not?
Assuming you don't make partner, any idea what your next step is?
