1L job search / In House Summer Associate
« on: April 22, 2008, 03:42:19 PM »
Recently offered a position as a clerk in house with a medical corporation that specializes in distribution and development of medical technology. International company that is looking to grow through acquisitions. Also alot of patent litigation and product liability defense on occasion.

I have a few other opportunities and would like to know if anyone knows of any long term benefits that go with working with a company in house (other than money lol). I know that this is valuable corporate experience but what about mentoring and such... things you get when you work with a judge or in SOME firms...

Temple ACE.

Okay so I have given up briefing cases outside of my textbook. What I do is make notes in the margins and use a highlighter and I do just fine in class. I have a very good grasp of what I read when I get to class. If I dont remember, I usually dont have any problem finding things in the book with the way I highlight.

Now when it comes time to begin outlining, which from what I have heard, is refining the mass of my semesters notes into a something manageable to guide me thru the final, will I be at a disadvantage by not having case briefs to print out?

I do make comments on the cases issues, and write down questions I have about things I dont understand in the opinions on my computer. But I just wanna know if briefing the case inside the book is going to make things difficult in the long run?

General Board / Ideal 1L Summer???
« on: June 29, 2007, 02:49:31 PM »
I just wanted to pose a hypothetical question...

What is the ideal summer job for a 1L? I know that there are many factors, but let's say that I am in the top 5% of my class and I have an open mind about what type of law I want to practice. Do 1L's clerk for fed. judges or work in BigLaw for large salaries like 2L's? I know all of this depends on the type of law the student plans on practicing, but I just wanted to know what would be considered an awesome job for a summer 1L across the board.
