Big law firms here where I live just do not hire 1Ls. The most you can get is clerking for some suck-ass judge.
Although most law firms don't advertise it, pretty much ANY firm will take a 1L if they are impressed enough with the applicant's resume.

Theoretically yes!

Which boils down to finding a way to let 'em know of as many stats about your brain and other parts of your body as possible ...

This is uncalled for.  If you think that it takes showing off your body to get a good law job, then you're as shallow and pathetic as the idiot who is going to hire you.

All the the resume considerations aside, I found working as a summer law clerk very enlightening. Frankly, I learned a lot and do not care about the resume so much. It didn't hurt that my school gave me a generous stipend to work at a public agency. :)

Maybe they're not talking about THAT body part you're thinking of..
