SA Practice Area Interests & Courses

Postby AntipodeanPhil » Mon Jan 27, 2014 3:37 pm

The firm I'll be working at this summer wants a list of three practice area interests.

Generally: is it a bad idea to list an area if you haven't taken any courses in that area?

Specifically: I've taken multiple courses in my top two practice area interests; I'm inclined to list corporate restructuring third, because it does sound kind of interesting, but I haven't taken bankruptcy yet, and know nothing about Chapter 11, etc. The alternative would be to choose an area I know something about but have less interest in.
