We charge the clients $50-$60 an hour.  We are the ones paying the students. 

even if you offered a quality, reputable service, what small firm would actually pay $50-60/hr for law student research anyway? i would imagine your target clientele probably bills $100/hr or less.  You might find a sucker or two, but I promise you, no reasonable small firm atty would pay $50-60/hr to babysit a law student. 

We recommend students use library textbooks that are available for public use. 

lol library textbooks.

don't worry client/firm x, based on the research conducted by a random discussion board poster using library textbooks, I am confident this is the manner in which you should proceed.


First of all, we are a startup and make no claims to the pretensions of the traditional law industry.  For this reason, we will advertise here, there and everywhere. 

lets be honest, the pretentiousness of your flame firm firm is the least of your worries.  its not humorous that anyone would solicit work on lsd based on the pretensions of the traditional law industry.  what is humorous is the thought of the type of candidate that would actually respond with interest to your post.

We do request your CV, which we would hope includes your school attended and GPA.  LSAT, though, is our first-pass sorting mechanism. 

of course, because anyone with below a 167 would obviously not be qualified.

i am not sure which is more humorous, the lsat score requirement or "advertising" on lsd.

i think the best (not easiest) way to do it is to contact the clerk of court for the particular county in which you had an offense, and find out what the procedure is for obtaining your criminal record.  I have to do this as well for a few different counties, all of the procedures/forms/instructions are on the clerk's website.

get those lor's asap;  some profs could take quite a while to get them together.  if you have all your ducks in a row (lors, ps, etc) , in the next couple months, you can send your apps out right after exams (or after you get your grades).

did the firm specify that this is some sort of temp position that may lead to an atty position? otherwise, how is an at-will atty position not a full-time atty position?  my understanding is that most atty gigs are at-will, as opposed to under contract.
