Well, if you are below 50% you probably can't count on anything from OCI. Just send out some resumes to places you think you'd be interested in working at and see if you hear anything back. The students with the highest grades will probably be wanting firm work, so if you want public interest then your GPA might not be so bad. I would also go talk to the Career Services office at your school and see what they recommend.
As far as dropping out, that's for you to decide. If you don't enjoy the law and don't think you'd like working as a lawyer, then yeah, I'd leave law school. But if you like this and think you could improve your grades, then stick with it.
