It will help on the margin, especially if you're looking to do public interest, but you'll still need to clear number ranges if you want to get in at a given school. The thing to remember is that just about everyone applying to law school is fairly driven and accordingly, has some unique factors to their application to make them stand out. As such, by the far the most helpful thing you can do is max out your LSAT score if you're finished with school, and if you're still in school, max out your GPA in addition to maxing out your LSAT.

this, if your only doing it for the slight positive then don't. if however you really want to then go ahead, it will be a great experience, i think
