1L job search / Is there such thing as 0L summer jobs?
« on: March 12, 2007, 05:45:13 PM »
Hey Guys/Gals,

My name is Josh.  I have just come back from a 6mth - 1yr stead in Thailand, and have to start worrying about law school as my education abroad will wrap up shortly at the beginning of 2007.  My question, is how do I get a job with a law firm as a 0L law student?  I have 1.5 yrs until; I start Law school and have plenty of options everywhere else as far as norma;l jobs go, but I would rather take a pay cut and go ahead and work for a law firm in some semi-menial job.  Any advice?  Keep in mind this is all assuming that I will make it into Law school as well.
