J.D. = Post-M.B.A. Associate?
I know from perusing the Wikipedia pages of bankers such as Erin Callan and Lloyd Blankfein that lots of lawyers lateral to banks. But, I have yet to see, with my extremely limited experience, a banker freshly minted from law school. What are the rules for lawyer-bankers? Do you have to be a ball hard corporate lawyer or can you go straight into an associate role sans Bar Exam? Thanks in advance for any information.
