Blonde, hot, and awesome. As always. :P How're you?

You're blonde? 


*le sigh*

Nonono, HD is blond. I'm a brunette. I'm not sure if that "le sigh" was good or bad, so...

I'm sure you're perfect the way you are!

I'm working at a great law firm

there are law firms in DC now?

on a serious note, how does 1LSAness affect your fall interview strategy? 

on an unserious note, i'm neither Harvard or Yale and i'd like to know if you would be willing to give me a job.

I'm not sure how this will affect the fall OCI, honestly. I really like this place, and I'd love to come back if they give me an offer. I'm not sure if any other place could really top it, but I guess I'd take a look around at other firms for next summer, and maybe a few public interest places, if they'll take me. If not, I'd be perfectly happy to come back here, which reduces the job-finding stress significantly.

I'd be willing to give you a job. How good are you with cats? ;)

that depends on how much you're paying me.

i am probably going to focus my job search on DC firms in the fall.

I'm also applying to DC for the 2L summer (I'm starting to feel like everyone is).  I hope I don't hate it.

how is everyone feeling?  ???

My apologies for the poor grammer.  I am starting feel as though everyone is also applying to DC for their 2L summer.  It seems to be the default second-choice destination, irrespective of the first choice (e.g. students are applying to SF & DC, Houston & DC, Phoenix & DC, Boston & DC, Atlanta & DC).

for those of you with summer jobs, are you doing any real lawyering work, or "anonymous lawyer" busy work?

What's the difference exactly?

Could a paralegal do it?

I'm not aware of anything that a 1L law student is legally allowed to do that a paralegal is not legally allowed to do. 

If you are asking instead whether the work is such that a year of law school training is essential for understanding how to accomplish the task we're assigned, I think that the training helps, but I don't think that any of us are doing anything that an experienced paralegal couldn't do with a thorough reading of the Bluebook and a handful of Westlaw tutorials.
