Looking for a place in the Twin Cities area, MN, would prefer closer to Minneapolis, I have a dog too. Looking for June-August but can be flexible. Anyone want to recommend a nice area to live in there as well?

Question - if I take the mpre and fail it and take it again before the bar exam and I pass it - will employers be able to see that i Failed it? Just wondering, I am supposed to take it tomorrow but haven't prepared all that much.

Job Search / Fed. Gov, 2L Summer
« on: September 07, 2008, 07:32:36 PM »
I am currently looking into a bunch of different federal government positions for my 2L summer (no rush because most don't seem to hire til the spring anyway). I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with fed. gov organizations during a 2L summer. I can't seem to figure out whether the 2L summer positions are their main means of hiring graduates or not. As most of the jobs do not pay for the summer, I was wondering if I would be better of just working for a firm this summer and earning some cash. I would ideally like to work for the DOI or EPA...and I have very little info from anyone who has worked at either....but any advice from someone who has worked for the government would be helpful. Thanks a lot.

I'm going through the same feelings right now. Not about my law school sucking - just deciding I don't really want to be a lawyer - but at the same time I feel like I may regret not having my law degree 5 years from now or whenever down the line. Its tough - everyone tells me well I know plenty of people with a JD that aren't lawyers. Its a terrible argument because it just shows that alot of JD's hate being lawyers and feel the need to leave the field. I'm going to ask for a leave of absence this week. If they give that, I'm gonna test the waters in the job market. If they don't, I'm probably going to seriously consider fully withdrawing. My main reason - I don't think I like the sector of law I originally wanted to be in, and I'm finding that my only excuse to stay in is for the money at the end of it all - which is something i've really never been about. Tough call, so I feel the op's pain.

To add to my indecisiveness, I made a journal, am enrolled to participate in a clinic, and am in the top 1/3 of the class. Though, I guess transfers leave this type of stuff behind all the time.

Current Law Students / Practicing Abroad
« on: July 03, 2008, 09:02:21 AM »
Does anyone know where I can find requirements needed to practice law abroad with a law degree from a US institution...I'm guessing it would require more schooling, but I'm interested in finding out out exactly how much, and what kind of programs these long it takes? Interested in Switzerland, particularly...anybody have any info?
