Current Law Students / Re: Suggestions please

Would it be you burning the bridge or them because they were misleading? They're not going to open a space for you there if you do good clerical work.  I would plan on sometjing else.  The fact that you're asking about this sayes to me that your instincts are pointing you away from them.

They screwed you.  They knew you were in L.S. and were looking for a Legal internship. You might as well go volunteer somewhere to get experience. You need to build your resume and organize your future, not organize thier files.  Something that a H.S. grad can do...

Good luck.

it is not important at all. in fact, it's not even necessary to read the cases. what is necessary is that you know the black-letter law and how to write a law school exam. you don't learn that from reading (or briefing) cases.

That's true... I had a friend who hit median without buying a single book first or second semester. He's at a V50 BIGLAW firm for his 1L summer, too.
Yea I'm gonna risk $45K to do what he did and save on $1200 worth of books. :P  Are you people nuts.  I'm buying the books, reading the cases and at least try briefing...

I like the ocassional risk but I'm not doin this stuff for shts, and giggles.  $45,000!

No- the media will report that the police are calling the individual a "person of interest".   
Yea, that what they do... ;)

Just an OL but couldn't a person of interest be a "scared witness", or person "at risk, or a person who has a stake (positive or negative) in the outcome.

It's the media that makes that person a suspect.

I hear it's anywhere you can get experience... Even if it's voluntary :P (Damn Commies!)

No. Waist of time/money.

An attorney I was talking to after a hearing said "You seem like a firm type anyway."

Should I take this as a compliment of my wardrobe?

LOL, were you wearing cuff links?

It must have been my pink tie.

Nothing wrong with being the firm type. Public interest is so overrated - you will never make a difference. But, if you don't believe, waste your whole life and prove me right.
Public interest is an admirable direction to go.  I believe you have more tools to make more of a difference if you go private.  If you choose public interest, you will make a difference one client at a time and that is more than what is expected of anyone.

This is supposed to be dissemination of knowledge, not stupidity. 

People who's dumb enough to go to PSU should not be allowed to speak on this forum. 

You should follow your own advice.
Don't mind him. He's not used to being inside.  I suspect he's some sort of savant Yale dragged in from the streets...
