Why not just apply? MBB has summer internships if that’s what you are looking for. And I heard that referrals are not key components for applications in those firms

How did you get into your area of law? I have been licensed for 5 years and I still don't know where I ultimately want to be.

I was a good litigator but I had trouble turning off my brain and being present with my family when I was a litigator, so I don't think I would want to go back.

Does anyone have a qualified opinion on this?
