What Are 1L Jobs That PAY? (Besides Firms.)
« on: August 08, 2008, 08:17:56 AM »
Certain DC Organizations?  PI?  Judicial externships?  What are some jobs that will help pay the bills, since the last thing I'll need will be more loans. 

Also, do I have to apply at Dec. 1st for these places?  What are the least and most competitive 1L jobs?

I'll be attending a "good" law school, if that matters to the naming.

(re-posted.)
Yep.

Federal Judicial Center in DC (Fed gov't) pays in the low-to-mid teens per hour.

I worked for a state judge this last summer (my 1L summer).  I received federal work-study and the judge paid me.  Total compensation was about $6,000 for 9 weeks worth of work @ 40 hours per week.

I worked in the inhouse legal department of an investment bank.  I got paid 2500 biweekly. Inhouse positions especially at banks are difficult to land but if you do, it's a pretty sweet gig.  :)
