Emphasis Added is a podcast by the Houston Law Review. Check this episode out on video on YouTube at https://youtu.be/hl9dwGeEChY
The Law School Real Talk Series by the Houston Law Review was developed to provide useful and actionable advice to first-year law students regarding the many unknowns of Law School. On this episode of the series, I am joined by Houston Law Review members Drew McKay and Kirsten Williams as we discuss our experience and advice on how to navigate the legal market as a law student. Our guests provided a balance of experience and interest between big law firms and the public sector, with Drew planning to litigate at Hunton Andrews Kurth upon graduation, Kirsten to Clerk for judge Andrew Edison of the Southern District of Texas, and my plan to be a transactional attorney for Latham & Watkins. Drew, Kirsten, and I discuss the entirety of the hiring process for law students while providing our own tips, tricks, and advice along the way, from where to search for job opportunities, to networking, applying, interviewing, and more.
