Is everyone enjoying working as a summer associate/clerk?
« on: June 09, 2005, 10:15:07 PM »
I am loving it so far and really learning quite a bit.  I do feel a little inefficient however at times while doing my research. There are only a few 1L's at the firm and the rest are 2L's who tend to have a little more research experience. The feedback I have gotten so far has been positive so I am happy about that.  Most of the attorneys seem approachable and friendly.

What do you actually do in your summer associate position? I have no idea what those jobs entail and I'm very curious.

Thanks,
Erin

Much like the type of research and writing you did for your appellant brief. Feels like homework all day.

To me it is more interesting that school.... somehow when a real life client and real money is involved I enjoy the work more:) I am really liking it.
