Does your school have a media law clinic?
Law school clinics are great for the 1L summer because you get experience and credit and you can put it as "work experience" on your resume.  You also get contacts with employers.

Even if you can't get the clinic you want, another clinic (judicial clerkship, elder law whatever) might be a good option to get some experience under your belt.


Not that I know of... but I will check that out. I want to work for a judge this summer, but it has nothing to do with sports law. That's ok right?

I know that my school has a sports/gambling law club. If you look into it your schools may also. I'm not sure about an offical major in it, but at least a lawclub. My school also allows members of other schools to tag along on summer overseas as long you are in good standing with your school.

Well I look to join the sports and entertainment club (kinda tough as a part-timer while working). But my question is what kind of work should I be looking for this coming summer?

1L job search / NEED GUIDANCE!! - 1L NOT SURE WHAT TO DO OVER THE SUMMER
« on: January 21, 2010, 09:57:09 AM »
Hi all -

Please help me with these challenges. I am a 1L, and my first semester did not go so well, my GPA is a 2.27. I go to school part-time and work in finance during the day, so there is a heavy load on my plate. I know I am smarter than that so I hope to do significantly better this semester.

I want to get into SPORTS LAW at the end. I don't know where to start for a summer position (I will be quitting my job to gain legal experience). I do not want to work in a corporate law setting, as of right now at least. Should I...

-ask my finance company to move me to the legal department?
-look to work for a judge?
-try to work at a law firm, unpaid?
-get a legal assistant position (like admin), paid?
-get a legal internship in a sports capacity, like work for the MLB?
-something else?

PLEASE HELP. NEED DESPERATE GUIDANCE.

thank you for the help!
