1L job search / Circuit Court Judge, Internship?
« on: March 02, 2008, 02:11:45 PM »
Hello!

I have an opportunity to work with a Circuit Court Judge as an L0 with an acceptance letter from a T1 school.

I want to emphasize ‘work with’ over ‘intern.’  I will be performing IT duties and other more menial labors due to my background in computer science. 

I have three questions, if you would be so kind as to answer them (or point me to a website with relevant information):   :)

1)   Is a Circuit Court Judge Internship a prestigious position (does it usually pay, is it sought after, etc), or does it vary wildly by state?
2)   How much does it matter that I do internships in a state that I will eventually be working it? For example, I do not care where I work as a lawyer, as long as it is BIGLAW.  Do I need to intern in specific states (like not Montana, West Virginia, North Dakota, etc.) or will it not have an impact?
3)   Lastly, is this going to be a better resume builder than just jerking it over the summer, or could it potentially hurt my long term job prospects by nailing me down to one state?

I truly appreciate your helpful responses.  I look forward to the day I can pass on the advice that you give me.

LSAC and LSDAS / Hold LSDAS report for Rec. Letter???
« on: February 26, 2006, 11:04:07 PM »
One of my professors just barely sent out her letter of recommendation this past friday. My Feb. LSAT scores have come in, and my LSDAS reports will probably be going out tomorrow (Monday). I know LSAC says that once they receive the latest letter, they'll send that out also in another "updated report". But what if the schools make their decision immediately, even before receiving that letter? Should I somehow try to have my LSDAS reports held up? Thank alot for any insight or advice on this.

Does anybody have any ideas/suggestions on what information to provide the professor who is writing the letter of rec? I've heard one should give their personal statement to them so they have an idea where the student is coming from and perhaps will try to corroborate the letter with the personal statement. anybody know anything else? thanks alot.

Studying for the LSAT / Fear of never passing The Bar
« on: October 15, 2005, 05:32:18 AM »
(assuming you plan to practice in California)

Does anybody fear never passing the difficult calif. bar? or fear it might take them years to do it? and if so, what is the point of law school?

anybody know what the average lsat score is of people who don't pass the bar? or the minimum lsat generally necessary to pass the bar?
