Congrats. Is a contract position? Was it with corporate or trial?

Thanks. No contract. It's at will.

Department is commercial litigation.

did the firm specify that this is some sort of temp position that may lead to an atty position? otherwise, how is an at-will atty position not a full-time atty position?  my understanding is that most atty gigs are at-will, as opposed to under contract.

I'm not sure how to fit the position in to either of those titles.

This is simply a law clerk position. I am working part-time until the end of school year. That's it.

I do know that the firm is interested in growing. I also know that the last person they hired was their law clerk from the previous summer. He is now an associate.

If the firm needs a commercial litigator after I pass the bar, I hope they will consider me for the position. If not, I will chalk this up as experience and move on.

I just want to make it clear that I am not a lawyer, nor has the firm insinuated that I will be.
