A lot of firms list their email under the Careers Section of their website. Also, quite a few jobs on my law school's employer database say we can email our resumes and cover letters. If I am presented with the option of emailing the cover letter and resume, do I place myself at a disadvantage if I do so?
How about for public sector or government?
I'd rather not waste my time printing and mailing if I have a less than 1 in 100 chance of getting the job (1L, no grades, T14).
