I had the year off and got a job at a law office with no legal experience. I think I got the job based on my LSAT, because I was supposed to have some paralegal certificate. I played down the law school thing, and pretended to be undecided though, which I would not recomend at this stage (you don't need enemies). I started as a legal assistant doing easy work. They actually paid for paralegal classes and promoted me. It was a very good experience, and I think it will help me a lot in law school. Now I am interning for a large county law firm more alligned with my interests.
I say go for it. Most attorneys seem excited to meet someone interested in the law, and I have definately been taken under their wings. Most firms want someone long term b/c so much training is involved, so I would suggest interning. If that does not work just try to go interview with a few attys under the pretense you want to learn about what they do.
