I'm trying to decide between between part time law school and full time law school. Specifically, the school I'd be considering both ways is Suffolk. Suffolk, while technically a T4, is still pretty well respected in the Boston area.
So here's my question. How do you get a job, coming out of law school? It is my impression that you get a job through contacts you make while in school or in clerkships/internships. If that is the case, I'd think that your prospects for finding a job would be greatly reduced in a part-time program. If, however, the above scenario is the exception and not the rule, and law students typically get jobs through their schools career centers or whatever, then I'd think a part time program would yield similar results.
A part time program would fit into my life better at this point, but I'm not going to let money get in the way of my future, so if there is a real advantage to a full time program, then I'm all for it.
