I didn't say it was a permanent job. It is a summer position. If there are summer positions available, does that not indicate there are jobs in general. I'm also not saying that every person who goes to law school will get a job. I was saying that perhaps you didn't network enough.
Again, unless there's some nepotism at work here, I still don't believe you. I've sort of explained in detail below why I don't believe you. Not that I really give a rats ass, even assuming you are telling the truth, that would simply mean you've found a lawyer/law firm that should be committed to some psychiatric facility.
Also, if it's so unbelievable that I have a summer job before beginning school, I guess that speaks pretty well for me. What is so difficult to believe about it, really?
Why would that speak well about you? You have no idea how well or bad you're going to do in law school, and neither does that employer. It speaks nothing
about you, but it speaks extremely poorly about that employer who's willing to hand out a job to someone that for all he knows could be expelled from school, or fail half his exams before the time comes.
Again, the reason I replied the way I did is that I've simply never, ever, heard about any
legal employer making an offer to someone who hasn't even started
law school, that's simply beyond ridiculous.
Again, if you're offered a job at your fathers office or your uncle's or something like that, yeah, of course they're going to give you a job. But if you're telling me you sent an application to random law firms and pretty much said "Hey, I'm gonna go to law school, got a job for me?" and they actually said yes, then yeah, there's something seriously wrong.
I'm still leaning towards not believing you though. Mainly considering just how incredibly far away this is from the experiences of every
currently in law school or the legal business. It's literally unheard of.
you can't take the bar without having gone to law school so the Do NOT go to law school trolls are pointless.
Well, this is in fact not true. Several jurisdictions allow you to sit for the bar without actually going to law school. And yes, that includes the two most "important" states; California and New York. Of the top of my head I can also think of Washington and Virginia that allows you to take the bar without going to law school. I know there are other states too, but I'm just too damn lazy to google it.
