I am a 2L law student. Prior to starting, I put in 10+ years in the IT field as an engineer. Being an independent contractor, I dealt with alot of contracts. Currently, I have a certain IT company that wants me to handle their contracts (reviewing them, negotiating them, etc). Law school has no doubt, given me an entirely new view on contract law from what I once had. This company isn't asking me, nor would I try to, work in a legal capicity with these contracts. They're asking me to work with these contracts the same way I would have in my previous career. I'm sure everyone is seeing the conflict that is starting here.
Am I able to work for this company, in this capacity, without getting myself in some screwy situation with someone claiming I was acting in a legal capacity while in law school? Because that's not what I'm attempting to do here, nor is it what the company is excepting.
but since contracts are so tied to the law, it seems like a very thing line...
Let me know your thoughts on the matter. I don't want to move forward with this if I'm going to get screwed here.
I appreciate your comments/thoughts.
