Boston U / Re: Law Review = Job?
« on: March 13, 2004, 12:24:05 PM »
It is true that some don't have jobs both most are either a) not interested in working in a big law firm and so will be applying to government, non-profit, and small law firm jobs this spring, or b) not interested in being lawyers.

And as with any other journal, the membership doesn't automatically get you anything -- you still have to interview well, not be an a-hole, and have good grades -- and LR doesn't necessarily mean you've got any of those things locked.

A lot of 1Ls are research assistants for professors or volunteer for non-profit legal kind of things. I wouldn't give up on the firm possibility too quickly though -- now is about the right time to start sending letter of inquiry/resumes to small firms to see if they need a clerk for the summer. They won't pay much, but it will be a good addition to your resume for the fall and good experience.
