Any tips on how I should decide? As a 1L, I really don't have that strong (any?) an idea of what I want to do...?

Job Search / HELP: Judge v. Firm
« on: January 14, 2008, 04:07:45 PM »
Need some opinions here...I have an internship offer with a deadline from a federal COA judge. Also did some firm callback interviews, which would likely not be decided on for a good while (they hinted decisions would be made in February, whereas I really need an answer now...).

What should I do?! Advice?

Job Search / Interviews
« on: December 29, 2007, 03:46:07 PM »
I've gotten quite a few interviews with federal judges and even some firms. I'm curious to hear from those who have been through the 1L job search before about how many interviews turn into offer. Obviously there's no hard and fast rule, but I'm curious about how liberal judges/firms are with interviews and what I should expect (if anything) to come of all this.

Current Law Students / Supplemental Jurisdiction Question
« on: December 08, 2007, 11:35:35 AM »
Could a federal claim be injected into a suit otherwise predicated on diversity if the jurisdiction over the claim is based on 1367? My assumption is that it may be, because Art. III allows it generally and that -- in this context -- the well-pleaded complaint rule from Mottley (interpreting 1331) doesn't apply. Is this assumption correct?
