Military Reservist and lateraling

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 11, 2016 7:29 am


I have a hypothetical situation where I could start a dt. clerkship in three years. I am an incoming associate at V15 in major market.

Because I only need one year to pay off debt, I would seriously like to leave biglaw after 2 years, join the military reserves (figure the process takes about a year), then clerk.

How would this affect my chances of jumping back in biglaw market?
