Thanks guys!  You've been a big help.  And good news for me, since Covance will pay me more $ than a firm.

Job Search / Importance of pre Law school Legal job?
« on: April 18, 2008, 01:41:42 PM »
Hey everyone!

I was hoping someone could share their insights on how important your pre Law school jobs are to Law School acceptance?

I have a science background and have been working in research universities for a few years.  I am relocating to a state in order to gain residency for law school tuition (and hopefully acceptance!).  I could easily get a job working for a large biotech company, but I'm wondering if securing a position as a legal assistant/secretary in a firm would be more benneficial for my law school resume?  How much of a bennefit would a legal job provide?  I would think working in a law office would display my serious interest in becoming a lawyer, but maybe this is actually of negligible importance??  I also heard that any experience in a law office helps you get an internship/summer associate position for 1Ls.  Is this true?  Please help!
