As others have pointed out, working during 1L year is probably ill-advised, even if not disallowed by your school. However, I'm a 3L who has been working 15 hrs/wk this year at my job from last summer, and its been great. My grades have never been better, and the money is obviously nice. I should note, though, that my employer is super laid back and understanding that my school comes first, and I probably wouldn't be working there otherwise.
