Please dont waste your mental health on applying to firms. Start your career at the Bar under the guidance of a good lawyer/firm - preferably in their mid 30s to early 40s. Your preparation for the judicial services will help you in your litigation practice. You can try again next year, and this time, you would have had a feel for how the statutes are actually applied in practice.
Can you please tell me how can I get in touch with you? Just in case, my email is: email@example.com
Naturally, I got in touch with a few recruiters (since corporate work is what I want to do) and I was turned down magnificently by all of them. Some of them using words that pinched. But I understand why so.
I have applied to all the law firms under the sun, from the amarchands to smaller firms and no one has written back yet.
Is there any hope for me to make it in a corporate law firm? I cant even expect high salary, I am willing to work for less. Is this stigma of "gap years" there to stay?
Can anyone suggest strategies? I have made bad choices after bad choices and I would really, really appreciate if someone can help me out here.
