Law Firms / Re: Young Attorney Seeks Employment

prestigious email address

It would be prestigious if he were actually a law associate. The problem is that this guy's probably qualified to be nothing more than a WalMart associate if he's posting on here for a job.

Law Firms / Re: Do big firms hire from their support staff??
« on: July 29, 2005, 06:35:54 PM »
I'm just curious, but does anyone know if big law firms will hire you on as an attorney (once you get your degree, of course) after you've been working there as a legal assistant/paralegal/secretary??  The reason I ask is that I'm going to an evening program, but I've heard that big firms frown upon evening students...but I was wondering if I were to get my foot in the door another way, would they give me a chance??

Any input would be helpful...thank you.

Why would a good firm want to hire someone with bad grades from a bad school simply because they stuck a few labels on a closing binder? Firms care about grades and law school quality. There aren't any backdoors (unless your daddy is a big client). Who said firms frown on evening students? Firms frown on stupid evening students from bad schools. There isn't any "give me a chance" in a law firm, when you're not productive until year 4.
