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

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

Their law school building isn't very law-schooly (well, the classrooms are, but find a lawschool with windows in the classrooms and I'll be shocked). That is a good thing.

I was down there in the Fall when they hosted the Thomas Tang Moot Court...

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.

3L job search / Article I Clerkships
« on: December 19, 2008, 05:33:44 PM »
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?

Go!

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...

Law Firms / Re: paris offices?

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.

Why would anyone want to attend a University that hosts the lowly Miami Dolphins?
