Current Law Students / Some advice needed about intern/extern
« on: February 08, 2005, 11:48:23 AM »
I am currently a PT evening student and working full time as an engineer for around 10 years now (and I cannot really quit and get some kind of legal experience right now because of monetary reasons for my family).  However, I do not want to work in IP or anything related to engineering or technology related law, but rather either family or criminal law. 

I am currently in the middle of applying for several internships/externships which are Part time relating to family and criminal law but have run into a wall as to what to say in my coverletter. 

I was headed toward something like..."Though I lack legal experience, I have strong analytical skills....[related to work stuff]"

OR "Though I lack experience in Criminal law, I have strong analytical skills because...[related to work stuff]"

Please help me. 
Any advice is appreciated.

Transferring / Re: successful transfer without high grades?

I am just trying to move from tier 4 to tier 3 (there are no tier 4s in the location I am trying to move to), and it's only because of location.  If my tier 4 was closer to home and work, I would not consider transferring.

Transferring / successful transfer without high grades?

It seems to me that everyone that has successfully transfered to a higher ranked school did so based on high grades or ranking. But has anyone done so for family, job related, etc reasons.  Now, I'm not talking about for example, a 4th tier to a 1st tier, I'm talking like 2nd to 1st, or 4th to 3rd (just one move up).   

Do schools take into considerations other than grades and ranking?  And if so, do you put it in the personal statement?
