I haven't started law school yet but was wondering what current law students would think about this idea. I would like to do an internship abroad after finishing my first year of law school, and I am very strongly interested in international human rights law. I found an organization called Projects Abroad that offers a Law & Human Rights Internship in Morocco. You have to be able to speak high/intermediate French (which I nearly can, but have over a year to work on this) and would be placed in a private law firm to research case precedents and develop litigation, etc., etc. However, this isn't something you apply for-mostly you just pay and go, as long as your references check out. I wasn't looking to earn school credit, only to gain experience overseas in public int'l law. Is this a bad idea because it's not an offical ABA sponsored/listed/etc. opportunity? I can always do something more prestigious later on, right? I know this is far in the future but I would need to start saving now and am curious anyway. What are your thoughts? Here is the weblink:
Thanks for your input!
Hey guys and girls. What kind of scores do you all think I would need to get offered money at a school ranked from top 50-60? I'm new to this whole idea of being offered money for law school (guess I was too worried about the LSAT to notice!) and was just curious what kind of money is out there. Thanks!

Definitely not looking for an ego stroke, but this is where I REALLY want to go, and my LSAT scores are only at the median. I feel like I have a shot, yes, but I am just nervous and want to be sure I'm not assuming the best. My graduate GPA is significantly lower, and I felt like in order to make that look better I would need a higher LSAT score. I guess I was under the impression that 160 was only average, and that I needed something a bit higher than average in order to have the best shot possible. I'm sorry if I came off cocky; it was not my intention as I am just extremely nervous about the whole thing.
What do you guys think my chances for Tennessee are with those scores? I want to study public int'l law and have good volunteer experience, a master's degree in anthropology that I studied for in England, and (I think so!) excellent reccommendations. What do you all think? Should I be worried bc of my lower LSAT score?
I just noticed that I submitted an application where my personal statement was in Times New Roman and my essay was in Cambria font. They are pretty similar which is why it took so long for me to notice but do you think it matters? Will the law schools notice and will it make me look sloppy or inconsistent?
