Re: Wish to speak with Cornell Law 0Ls, 1Ls, 2Ls, Alumni, Faculty and Staff?

There's a "Cornell law students taking questions" thread here. Why don't you just use that?

Re: I'm a Public Defender AMA

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Are there specific interview questions that PD offices usually ask that I should be aware of? Why PD, and would you consider working as a prosecutor are two I'm aware of. Any others?

Re: I'm a Public Defender AMA

I've pretty much taken all the relevant classes for public defense. Would it be worth taking a class on depositions? Are criminal depositions common?

Re: 2L summer Public Interest

Mods might want to move this to the right topic. It certainly matters what your 2L summer is. But how it matters, and how much it matters, largely depends on what kind of public interest you want to practice after graduation. You said you are unsure. Are you at all interested in a career in public d...

Re: Cornell Students and Grads Taking Questions

How hard is it to get LA biglaw with ties? I'm not sure I'm the best person to answer this question, but I'll take a stab seeing as no one else has. The short answer is that if you've got ties and median/above median grades, you'll probably be able to get LA biglaw if you hustle a bit. Basically, t...

I'd definitely go with NYU here. Ithaca is less expensive, but not nearly enough to make up the difference in scholarship.

Re: Cornell Students and Grads Taking Questions

Same line of question as RBG. Do students feel claustrophobic and trapped due to the small class size and isolation? What is living in Ithaca like? Is there always something to do/what do students do for fun? I’m worried about feeling restless/isolated as I have never lived in a rural setting but I...

I'm a 2nd year PD, happy to answer questions about getting the job, the job itself, career paths for a PD, trials/courtroom work, basically whatever interests people.

Feel free to ask here or PM me.
How difficult is it to get a PD job these days? And what can a law student do to make it easier?
