I would recommend you start learning how to blog, take as many 'dead president' courses as possible, those courses which cater to the majority of practice areas you are most likely to serve, bankruptcy, family, T & E, real estate transactions. Concurrently, take CLE courses...that is where you will get the most practical functional information on practicing law. Spend off time in the court house watching how things are done even if it is not your jurisdiction. Get comfortable there. Concentrate on all 'practical' skills like negotiation, mediation and more. If you know this is what you want to do, see if your school offers a Law Practice Management Course even if it is not-for-credit, a seminar offered through CLE. If they don't see if another law school nearby does and take it over the summer. Start your networking now letting people know this is your ambition. There is so much you can do if you've made your mind up to do it.
