bump.  They haven't responded to my cover letter.

They have a small summer program. They're probably not hiring 1Ls.

They did contact me and the recruiting person seemed very nice, but they're done with hiring for this year.

They don't take many 1Ls at all, and I'm not sure what exactly their 1L strategy is (firms usually use 1L jobs to either try to grab someone they REALLY want early, or as marketing for their 2L program, or as part of a diversity program).

Definitely apply next year, especially if you have a connection to NJ.

Is it worth it to do a clerkship for an Article I federal judge? How are those sort of clerkships viewed by employers? Is it possible to go from an Article I court to a circuit court clerkship?

What about comments of them being a sweatshop with hours comparable to NYC Biglaw, but with significantly lower pay?

From what I can find, 4th years are barely making NYC market for 1st years.

The pay is less.

There wasn't much of a "sweatshop" feel around the office though. There is definitely no "facetime" requirement, which eases up the hours, fwiw.

What do you want to know? It's a NJ firm. Full practice. Pays less than NYC.

I remember seeing someone on here who transferred to Chicago after 2L...

You need to be fluent.

You don't need a french law degree. You can practice US Law in Paris. You will have to work for a large, international firm to do so.

Pre-law is a joke of major, find a real major and try again. Also, find a real school if at all possible.

HBCU's are real schools and a respectable choice if that is where you feel comfortable, and where you feel like you will get the best education.

Pre-Law is not a real major. Major in something else. You will get into law school and do fine with ANY major.

I'm a 2L at NY, have an offer with Lowenstein and am debating between them and two larger NYC firms.

Looking for the inside scoop on Lowenstein.

PPP broke over $1million last year, despite a down economy.

Notable Venture Capital practice.

Why pick them over a larger NYC firm? Opportunities? Depends what you want in a firm.
