sorry for necroing, and sorry for not getting back to you. is this still a relevant question?

my 2 cents is that you take on the workload assigned for a few weeks before making moves; as opposed to walking in with your best laid plans.

Switching Practices

I'll be starting at Kirkland/Weil this fall (or January 2021, who knows?). I'm slotted into a practice group that I'm interested in, but I'm also interested in BK work (at a pretty opportune time too). How do you all suggest going about checking out BK before I start/at the firm to see if I'm interested enough to switch? At that stage, what would you suggest doing to facilitate the switch? I'm a bit paranoid, because I was hired out of law school through connections I made with an equity partner in my group; I did excellent in a class he taught in the practice area. I really like the guy and don't want to piss him off, especially if I check out BK and decide I prefer the group I'm in, where he is one of the main guys.
