I was initially going to work both as a part-time, but the judge is requiring me to work at least 4 days a week. So, it seems like I would need to choose between the two.I have a judicial internship lined up at District Court of N.J., and also a research assistant position with a professor who is going to do research on corporate/employment law. Corporate law is where I want to go into eventually.Do I take the judicial internship or RA? Would it make such a big difference when I try to interview for a 2L summer job?
I don't think it will make a huge difference, but I think you're better off with the judicial internship. Working with a judge is always a great experience to have on your resume, no matter what type of practice you want to get into. Employers know that a lot of people do the RA thing when they don't have other options for 1L summer, so the judicial internship might give you a slight edge for next summer. However, if the prof is working on something really cutting-edge or simply something that you're deeply interested in, go for it! Oh, one other thing- check to see if the RA is possible during the school year (in which case, you can get both experiences). A lot of people at my school do that for pay or course credit.
