I have a question that likely doesn't merit its own thread and is somewhat related to this thread:
I'm a 1L. I have a summer government job secured. I want to stay in my law school's geographic area. Recently, a professor, who used to practice in the area, said she knows a firm (small to medium) that would be a great fit for my interests, their needs, personalities, etc. This prospect interests me. My question: should I contact this firm before next fall to let them know I'm interested for a 2L gig? If so, when?
