Planning Corporate and Public Interest Law Careers - Julia Green

In Chapter 2 of 9, Julia Green reflects on her Georgetown Law School experience.  While there, Gatto remembers sharing an uncertainty toward career and purpose with her classmates and peers.  Hiring companies present lucrative opportunities and students, unfamiliar about goals with career planning, accepting them not seeing alternative opportunities, especially given student loan obligations. Green highlights the benefit attending law school immediately upon college graduation, namely having a law degree by age 25. She also highlights the recruiting dichotomy between corporate law and public interest law and the necessary initiative required to push beyond the corporate recruiting marketing and promotion and into exploring public interest opportunities.
