2L job search / I didn't get an offer from my summer employer...

2L job search / Question from somebody in a rare position
« on: February 15, 2009, 04:00:49 AM »
Due to a minority program (I'm a minority, not an URM) at my law school (mid-T1 school in the Midwest) I was able to secure a SA position at a big firm in the Midwest this summer (the particular office I'm working at has over 200 attorneys and pays market to SA). I'm understandably happy and thankful for this opportunity. However, I can't help but look ahead and get a bit worried about 2L summer. My grades were not very good (below the median), and I have no desire to live in the Midwest after graduation (I'm from California and would like to return there). So while I might be able to bust my ass this summer and get an offer to return to THAT firm for 2L summer, I'm scared that all the California firms won't give me time of day, despite my work experience, simply because of my grades and school location.

Any advice? Other than obviously trying to improve my grades.

Erie doctrine, specifically the rules that come out of Hanna v. Plummer. Explain.

Also--when in doubt:

1. Transaction and Occurrence

2. Notice and Opportunity to be Heard

It's all about that.


Haha, so true  :D

One thing I know is that I don't want Biglaw. I probably want to work a mid-sized firm between 10-50 attorneys with reasonable hours. $60-80k starting pay. I attend a mid T-1. Given that, do my grades really matter that much?

yes.  stop whining and go study.

and u base this on....

there's a lot of information on this very subject in this thread: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,80098.0.html

hahahahaha  :D :D :D

Ever seen a graph for salary distributions straight out of law school?

I have. Most jobs are either over $100k or under some other number (I don't remember). But there do still exist thousands of jobs in between. They just aren't as prevalent.

Come on, I'm an 0L and even I know these jobs are basically non-existent for grads straight out of law school.

And you know this based on what? Nobody on this board really talks about non-biglaw jobs very often.
