Fedclerk to ada to midlaw to...biglaw?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jan 05, 2018 3:23 am

Thoughts on how competitive one would be for mid career biglaw lateral lit positions if one’s resume basically went

Top third (barely) at strong t30 to

1 year fedclerk in major market to

ada for a few years to

Juniorish lit associate for 1-2 years at strong regional midlaw firm

In other words, would it make sense to take the aforementioned midlaw lit position in order to potentially lateral to biglaw in 1-2 years?

FWIW, goal is ausa in major competitive market (but acknowledging I may have made a mistake in potentially going ada to firm and not vice versa)

This is true. You can keep the conversation going in the other thread.
