Yes.

You need to play things a bit safer than most students, but it's definitely do-able.  Make sure you get a position with a firm the summer after 2L using the OPT or CPT programs.  This should virtually ensure that you get hired after 3L; at that point, you'd just need to acquire a TN-1 visa before your F-1 expires.

Be prepared to stay with that firm for a few years.  Once you have some experience, moving to different regions should become easier - however, that counts for most law school graduates.
Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time.  Get wise.

Cool. Thanks so much for the advice!

TN-1? Is there such a thing? You mean TN, right?

No, it's the TN-1.  The TN-2 is for Mexicans.
