2L Summer Big 4 Tax -> Big Law?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Oct 11, 2016 1:22 pm

I have a job lined up for 2L summer in a Big 4/WTAS tax. I want to go into a corporate/transactional practice at a big firm for post grad. OCI didn't pan out for a big firm for me.

Anyone have experience going from Big 4 2L summer to biglaw through 3L OCI/mass mail?

If I end up staying in big 4 post grad is transferring to big law after a few years unheard of? What are the exit ops from big 4 tax for a JD?

I don't know how often it happens, but I know someone that did exactly that. So possible

I know several people that were able to do that, but does not happen that much.

Pursuing an LLM at NYU/Georgetown may give you a second bite at the apple, too.

I never seen it done but exit options for big4 tax isnt too bad - i know people who have gone to biglaw, boutique tax law firms, in house as tax managers or tax directors, and other accounting firms doing consulting work.
