Thanks for the tips!

Does anyone know if it's a good idea to work abroad (Asia)? Or would the things they be do so different that it's not going to be attractive to future employers in the United States?

IMO it is a great idea. Many of my classmates had experience working in Asia and it seemed to be a plus for them. Also, if you speak any of the languages that is a boon. In fact, one of my classmates landed a 1L SA gig at a V10 in part because s/he spoke Japanese and expressed an interest in working there after graduation (because of the earthquake and nuclear disaster s/he ended working stateside, but that's probably neither here nor there- lol)

Yay! Haha. I'm Chinese, and I actually want to work for an international law firm that does corporate law between China and America. I'm a noob so I don't know if that makes sense.

Has anyone read, "Guerrilla Tactics for Getting the Legal Job of Your Dreams?" Is it worth reading?

Haven't read it but:

The idea is that you won't have time during your 1L year to sit down and read this book. I'm a 1L and I haven't had time to go track down a copy and read it, so I can definitely agree with this. As such I have no idea whether it's worth reading or not, but if you think you'll want to read it at some point, read it before school starts and you still have time.
