What job(s) should I apply to so that I can gain experience in the law field?
Mike, I think the reason you're getting so little response is that it's just hard to find any job right now. I presume you were/are Army. I think 71d is legal admin. You could always do a BEAR program on that, but that'd take up a lot of time.
Obviously, something like paralegal or legal secretary, or something of that sort would probably get you closest to the action, but I bet those jobs are tough to get right now.
Personally, I think law isn't so different than most jobs. Granted, it's not working on a factory floor, but an attorney's day probably isn't that different than an accountant's. Lots of review of documents, lots of preparation of documents, lots of time working at a desk, quite a few interruptions during the day to answer questions from various parties.
People like to act like working in the law is soooo unlike any other job that you MUST WORK IN THE LAW to get an idea. I don't know what type of work experience those people had, but personally, I don't see it. Granted, I don't have any real-world experience working in the law, but on the other hand, folks who demand that you work ONLY IN THE LAW BECAUSE NO OTHER WORK IS LIKE WORK IN THE LAW probably haven't worked much in other fields, either.
