Hi all. I'm a 3L, and I just wrapped up my summer with a firm, which offered me full time employment after graduation, as well as the opportunity to be a law clerk for them during the school year. I'm working three days a week for them. My question is to those of you who have done this: in your experience, what is the difference between being a summer associate and a law clerk? For what it's worth, this firm gave me a real work load over the summer, so maybe being a law clerk won't be much different. I'm just trying to figure out what to expect. Thanks for your input!

General Board / Law Review Managing Editor - worth the time or not?

Law Review Board elections are coming up. I'm batting around the idea of running. But I'm debating whether or not it will be worth my time. I have a job already. I'm probably going to be published. Good grades. So do I really need it? Can anyone give me a good reason for taking on a managing editor position? Thanks.

2L job search / Phone call from firm
« on: September 16, 2006, 10:22:21 PM »
I had my call back interview with my top-choice firm on Sept. 7th, and I know that the firm completed all of its second round interviews this past Thursday. Last night (Friday) at 5:30 pm, the hiring partner left a voicemail on my home answering machine asking me to give him a call. Do you guys think this is good news? Is there any reason, besides offering me a position, that a hiring partner would call me on a Friday night at 5:30? I tried calling him back, but he was gone for the weekend.
