    Nope. My friend works at Kirkland and Ellis in Chicago, and he has never seen the inside of the court room.

    The big money in law isn't in criminal defense.

    Litigation partners and associates do, sometimes. Most cases are settled out of court, but every once in awhile one will go to court and then of course the attorneys present the case to a jury, etc.

    People in some practice groups go to court a lot more often than others.
