Current Law Students / Advice Needed
« on: October 17, 2009, 11:29:06 AM »
I'm 33, graduated law school in '05, at the bottom of my class.  At the time I was battling substance abuse, which I have overcome since then.  I never took the bar.  Mostly worked low paying jobs not knowing what to do next.  Now I'm seriously considering studying for and taking the summer bar.  I was thinking about working a law related job until then, but all the jobs like paralegal or legal assistant seem to require experience, and I don't remember many things from law school, like research methods and citations.  What are my chances of finding a law related job for the next year, and what kind of jobs do you think I may be qualified for?  Temp jobs perhaps?  Internship is out of the question because I got to pay bills.

Also, I was wondering what field of law to practice after I pass the bar.  How is the job market for lawyers, and considering my circumstance, what should I expect?  Because I literally graduated bottom of my class, so I will not be able to be picky about where I work.  Perhaps my best bet might be government or nonprofit organizations for a while.  What do you think? 

I lost touch with all my friends from law school and college, and know very little about the legal profession for someone who graduated from law school, due to substance abuse.
