Why not take advantage of the connection now? I hate to paint a grim picture but in the event that your father and stepmother-to-be get a divorce, or she dies, that job opportunity is gone. Plus, I have NEVER heard a dean or associate dean of admissions claim that meaningful post-undergrad work experience negatively impacts a student's judgement in deciding to attend law school, chances at being admitted, law school experience, or post-law school employment opportunities. In every interview I have read, they have encouraged kids to pursue some kind of work or otherwise valuable life experience before applying. http://www.top-law-schools.com/interviews.html
