I know they say that 1L summer job does not really matter. but I think it matters a little bit, for students like me who do not have excellent grades.
I just got a summer internship offer from a very nice litigation boutique firm in L.A. (pays 900/ week) Yesterday I got an offer from a circuit court judge in New York.
Is it worth splitting my summer, working for, say, 8 weeks at the chamber, and 5 weeks in LA?
The firm position willnot automatically lead to a full-time position like SA at large firms, but I do think it will help me build up connections (I have no ties at all with either NY or LA, as I am international). And it's a reputable firm.
