I have been offered a clinical externship .. My question is, what is the value of such a position? Will this position help me secure future legal work? Does it look good on a resume? This position will require me to work about 25 hours a week, its unpaid, but I do get school credit. The externship only accepts 5 students per semester.
I really would like a paid position however, but I have had no luck so far securing such a position and this externship will be done in the summer. I am a 1L btw. Should I accept the externship or hold out for paid legal office or firm work which is not guaranteed?
Any response is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time,
