Jobs for 2L's

Jobs for 2L's
« on: August 19, 2008, 04:32:34 PM »
As I am preparing to begin my 2L year, I am really hurting financially. I know all grad students hurt, but due to unexpected medical bills that arose this summer, I am hurting bad.

I have had a tough time trying to find legal part time gigs as no one seems to be hiring in this economy.

I was wondering what some of your fellow 2L's did for work during there second year to make some cash?

How many 2L's actually work during there second year?

I am willing to consider non-law related jobs at this point.

Any tips or advice is appreciated.

Check with your profs and see if they need an RA. It doesn't pay a lot but it is $$$ and it also gives you something law related to put on your resume. Also, try some of the smaller firms and/or solos in the area. They often are looking for a little extra help. Finally, the Career Services office might also have some listings for firms that hire during the school year. Basically, finding a job for the school year is just like finding one for the summer except there isn't as much competition (usually). It takes a little bit of networking. Good luck.
