2. the churn is greater in litigation since it is so sh_t.

is litigation really that bad? I am a law student. if liti is so sh-t then why would people still choose liti?

I always see litigation lawyers openings but seldom corp lawyers openings on jobs portal.

This means that liti work is booming, and corp work is drying up!

Anybody managed to move into international firm doing corp?

In-house roles from disputes ?

Tons of disputes lawyers move in-house every year, even those from small firms. If you don't like disputes, you will quickly figure out that moving in-house is your best bet career-wise, especially if you don't wanna start from ground zero again in corporate.

It goes without saying that the average corp lawyer finds it much easier to move in-house than a litigator. But if you're willing to go for less sexy or prestigious companies and industries and use it as a stepping stone. it's not difficult at all to transit from disputes to in-house.

The truth is some academics are better off being in practice.
