What is Bankruptcy Law like?

Postby jckund » Thu Dec 19, 2013 11:50 am

Have a CPA, looking to take the LSATs and would attend a school with 2 years of work experience (Big 4 M&A Valuation). Curious what bankruptcy law is like... interested as a career path.

I'm not in that area, but we've got a couple lawyers in my firm that focus on it. In practice, it seems a bit like a hybrid of litigation and transactional work. You will get to argue motions and get into the courtroom, but you'll also get to negotiate, structure, and draft deals.

The above does not describe a consumer bankruptcy practice, which is much different and generally based on volume.
