It is very easy to get a non paying job abroad. You have to think about if you want the pay or the experience first.
If you want the pay it is much harder to find a job. If you just want the experience and to make contacts working in England won't be too hard, if you go through your schools OCI.

Granted being cute will help you. But, seriously i have been curious if women are treated like minorities in the law firms. I have been talking with this to some minority lawyers i know, and they pretty much all agree that the experiences for women are similar to that of minorities.

Keep up the good board posts, don't let the haters get to you

OneNote is great and you don't have to worry about losing anything you type

But check with your schools' IT department first to see if they give it to students for free.

Transferring / LOR's from College Profs

Would it be acceptable to get 1 recommendation from an old college professor and 1 from a law school professor?
I just graduated from college last year, and can get an amazing recommendation from my old college professor.
And if I go with just current law school professors I probably will not get as an amazing a letter I would get from my college professor.

As for becomming a prof w/ an LLM  from a T1, I think that it's possible but not highly likely. If you really wanted to become a prof, you'd have to transfer to a T1 at the very least.

This is completely baseless!!

It's no secret that most of the profs come from the most prestigous schools. I'm not trying to sugarcoat it for the OP. If that's what they really want, I'm just trying to offer advice that is most likely to lead to their goal. It's tough enough to get published period. A writer from a T4 will surely have to go through hell just to get an offer to publish their work. If it's just a passing thought than the OP can stay at her current school. If you'd like me to give them false hope sure... graduating from a T4 will lead to a career in academia.

I'm pretty sure that with the hundreds of law schools out there and the thousands of law professors teaching that not most of them come from the most prestigious schools.

People with a science backgroung will initially have a good grasp on writing for law school because scientific writing is very technical and involves laying out the steps of how you got your results, kind of like legal writing.
Personally I was an poli sci and english major and I have to forget about the success I had with writing before and remember that their is not too much room for original thinking in legal writing and it's all about applying the BLL
