I don't really know the difference, but I just got an email about an Intellectual Property externship for the fall semester. Its unpaid, but you get credit. Its a really well known manufacturer who claim to introduce you to in house/out house counsel differences and many other things.How difficult is it to get these positions and is it wise to do so?
I clerked at a court one summer.... The money wasn't all that much.
The Michigan Tax Tribunal pays student clerks to work a single summer. Students are called clerks there but "clerkships" is a word chosen by you and one that I declined to use.I thought it would be helpful as a first gig for tax but working at a firm was better for the reasons stated above. Okie dokie?
No one had used the word clerkship,The court just called me a clerk.And if you're suggesting the court is "unethical"That makes you kind of a jerk.
No one confuses summer jobs with clerkships
