So, how important is it to be a TA? I was asked to be one for the fall, but I would have to change my schedule so that the classes dont conflict. (I am really happy with my current schedule too.) Im also worried that it might be a lot of work. So, how good does it look on a resume? Is it worth it?
Under the assumption that the knowledge of many is better than the knowledge of one, I come to you for help. Looking purely at prestige and 'wow' factor for future jobs, which are the 'best' jobs. Possible list? Clerkship at big law firm, clerkship in small law firm, in house law, non-profit place, research job for law professor, judge externship, and others? I feel like this might have been done before, but it would be helpful now that we are all trying to find summer jobs.
So, my career services advisor was shocked to find out that I didnt have business cards yet. How many of you have them? How often do you give them to someone? What do they say besides name, school, graduation year, and email? Thanks!
So, this might be a stupid question, but what exactly do you put on your resume? Our school doesn't rank until after the first year, but all the sample resume's only have rank. Based on last year's class, I know I am in the X percentile - should I put X% based on last year's class? Thanks in advance!
I was recently offered a job in another state. It is with a large company that has one in-house lawyer. I would be assisting that lawyer all summer and they would pay for housing and a small salary. I would like to stay in my home city for personal reasons, but in a job market with lots of law schools, I dont know the chances of getting another offer. The career services office says that it is probably, but I probably wouldnt get paid. What would you do? (I am a 1L.)
I have heard some people say that you can buy an older edition cheaper and then get the newest cases online. Does this actually work? Has anyone here tried it? Like everyone else, Iím just trying to save money on books!
