Just got hired as a research assistant.


I'm pretty happy, I must say.

What does that pay these days?

I am working directly with general counsel at my company, learning IP rights and assisting in answering questions for our public offering. I get no more pay than my usual position...Director of Corporate Communications...but the corporate experience is invaluable and I am thankful for it. 

I would thoroughly enjoy doing some sort of summer internship or externship, but seeing that I work full time and study law in the evening while raising my young son...it's not an option for me...even if I could get hired.

I will be working at a corporate law firm with about 30 lawyers. I am also happy about returning to and working in my home town.

Congrats!  I feel the same way.  When I first left for law school, I never thought I would want to return home for work, but now I couldn't be happier.  The only thing that sucks about my summer job is that I will be living at home and will have to commute about 40 minutes each way to work.

Ruskiegirl, so what did you end up doing during your 1L summer?  Was it paid?

Do you think 2L Summer went much more smooth?
