I'm a 0L and will begin law school this fall, but in addition my husband works at a university nearby that offers an MBA program in conjunction with my JD program. I could get my MBA for free through institutional grant-in-aid. I worked for the Federal government my first year out of undergrad (albeit just as an executive assistant), and made some very strong connections, especially with my former boss who is a senior level government executive. Given the poor market now and my personal connections, I think it is most likely that I will find myself looking primarily for gov work. Would a joint MBA/JD assist with getting a government job? Or would I just be better off spending my summers working internships/externships, and focusing on law school, rather than trying to take MBA courses?
