Public Interest Fellowships Question

Postby ZyzzBrah » Thu Jan 16, 2014 9:30 pm

So this isn't a question about what my chances are or how to apply. Rather I'm interested in what people do after the public interest fellowship ends--i.e. what does a skadden fellow, stay in public interest, go to private practice, etc? (im really only interested in what happens after the more well known fellowships btw)

Anyone know of someone or personally have knowledge on this?

Roughly half of Skadden fellows stay on as staff attorneys. Others leave for new job offers.

I really don't think too many go to private practice because if you wanted that, there are much better ways to get there.
