Upon graduation from law school, we all had some vague or otherwise highly focused notion, of the substantive direction we saw our careers progressing. Regardless of whether you find yourself at a large firm rotating between departments or at a smaller firm earmarked for a specific practice, you will begin to define yourself by the nature of the specialty that you have pursued.

There is real pressure to define yourself as a corporate, litigation, tax, real estate or intellectual property attorney in the beginning of your career. We have found that it is critical to begin at the earliest stages, not only to appreciate the exact nature of the work involved in each area, but also to understand the range of alternatives that each substantive area of the law will offer you in today’s market.
