My goal is either to work for the federal government or work in a small whistleblower plaintiff's firm. To re-interate, I have significant pre-law school experience in finance (CSA in major institutional asset management firm), experience as a Summer Honors intern at SEC, published article on Dodd-Frank. Law Review Articles Editor at #54 ranked school. I missed OCI because I transferred, so l missed the boat with large law firms. If I can get hired at SEC or a small FCA/SEC whistleblower firm right out of law school, this goes out the window, obviously. I will be 30 years old when I graduate from law school.
RM: I know you have previously disparaged the GULC Securities program on these forums. All I ask is that you run a quick search on Linkedin to see the caliber of the people who have done the program and the positions they hold.
PS. I am also considering how the specialized credential will look to my future (lay) whistleblower clients.
Hey man, I'm not saying that people don't get some mileage out of the program. Maybe they do... But what kind of JDs did those linked in people have? Either way, I hope you get into the SEC without it, because frankly, that experieince will far surpass an LLM for future career prospects.
