Post-Clerkship BigLaw Workload

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 09, 2018 11:15 am

I'm sure the answer here is that it depends, but I'd like any anecdotes you may have. I will be joining a firm following my clerkship early this summer. I have a few weekend trips planned for shortly after I begin (weddings, anniversary, etc.) and would rather my work doesn't impact these trips. Can any of you that have joined a firm after your clerkship give me a sense of how quickly you were implemented into projects and how heavy the workload was the first month or two? Thanks!

Varies widely by firm. Can you push back your start date?
