This entire conversation is ridiculous. You are trying to get advice from people about hypothetical 1L summer jobs when you haven't even started law school. No offense, you could fail out your first semester, discover you hate law school or be in the middle of your class. I wouldn't worry about your summer job quite yet. Wait until you see if law school is really for you and how you do, then stress about finding a job.You can't plan that way. Now is the time to think about 1l summer. You should have a 3,5, and 10 year plan. You shoud revise your plan periodically. You should be flexible but have an idea of where you would like this to end up. If you plan and end up dropping out, fine. At least you had a plan. If you don't plan and choose to stay with it then, summer 1l, you'll be lifeguarding while everyone else is getting experience, resume building, and re-evaluating thier plans.
