From personal experience? No, I don't. The closest example is a rumor that a guy in another section who was being put through school by his pro-athlete friends so he could become their lawyer/agent.
I'm sure there must
people who do the LS -> Prestigious Agency Mailroom route, but I haven't met them personally. Personally, I am of the mindset that you don't go to law school unless you want to be a lawyer.
I really want to do law but really I only want to work in the court room. So if I don't get it or get shit law. I would rather struggle towards another passion than hating my existence
Understandable. Keep in mind, however, not all lawyers (hell, not even all lawyers in prestigious firms) do litigation. A lot of law is transactional. Even of the firms that do litigation, going to trial isn't the de facto option. Depending on the organization, it is rare to even get into a courtroom in your first few years of practice. Only a fraction of cases ever get there, anyway. I will say, Loyola is known for producing damn good litigators and puts a lot of emphasis on it.
What is your definition of shit law, by the way? Is it the traditional TLS definition like insurance defense and DUI work definition or is it anything that isn't BigLaw/MidLaw/Government/PI?
