Arbitration internship?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Mar 04, 2010 12:00 pm

1L. I have a SA position with a firm for the first half of the summer. I currently have three options I am considering for the second half of the summer: clerk with a state district court judge (unpaid, for credit), intern with the Federal Trade Commission (paid), or work at an International Arbitration Center abroad (paid). I am leaning towards the arbitration center because I speak the language of the country where it is in and would love living there for a few months, and after looking at the types of cases they are working on think that the work would be fascinating.

From what I understand though, FTC jobs this summer are hard to come by, and that could be a good opportunity too. I also think that would be very interesting work.

My question is, do you think working at an arbitration center would hurt me come fall OCI, if ultimately I want to do BigLaw? Does anyone have any experience working with arbitration? Was it a good experience?
