my roommate works for an attorney who is basically a legal consultant. he gives legal advice, files stuff, and does arbitration, but he doesn't go to trial or get involved in other very time consuming projects. so my roomie does research, writes memos, and goes to the courthouse to file stuff. it sounds pretty cool. i'd like to be able to mix it up.
one of the kids in the civil clinic does all sorts of stuff. he meets with clients, is on the phone a good portion of the day, and does research. i think i would like that. (even though he says the phone stuff is obnoxious sometimes) i just do research all day.
