If you're going to school full time, forget it. 1650 is on the low end of billable hours, but it's very much full time. It would probably require 40 hour work weeks at least.
thanks for the advice. You've given me some more questions to ask my prospective employer. I am a patent agent with some experience as an engineer supporting patent work so I think I'm ok for doing the work. Im just a little concerned that I could end up fired and with bad grades which would be a double-whammy.
Does anyone know of any tier 4 or possibly tier 3 schools that are still accepting applications for the fall semester. (I just took the June LSAT)
I think Case Western Accepts applications until a fairly late date.
I have an opportunity to work for a law firm as a 1L. Its a good firm and seems like a good opportunity (salary is good, support for school), but they want 1650 hours billable from me. Is it insane to try to make it through the first year part time with this load? Does anyone have any experience with this type of work load during school?
I really appreciate the opportunity, but dont want to set myself up for failure.
I am accepted at GMU and RU-N (with scholarship money and in-state). I would like to practice in the NY area although I hear great things about DC and will have an open mind if I head down the coast.
IP is my specialty (based on work experience to date).
Is this a clear win for GMU? Based on rankings I would say yes, but because of the hassle of moving down to DC (and the vast difference in expense) I would like to get additional input.
