Probably any 1L legal work will be decent to talk about at OCI.

A'nold, you're a vet. You've probably read every post on this forum. You know the answer to this question.

Yeah, but seeing as how I never get to post on this part of the forum b/c I am a jobless wonder, I wanted to take all of your guys' time to specifically address my not so important Legal Aid question. I need to belong man. :wink:

A'Nold you are a vet but since you seem like a nice guy I will entertain your question anyway for other people.

Yes of course it will be good--certainly tops not doing something legal related and/or studying abroad and/or taking summer courses alone.

Just emphasize what you did in terms of substantive legal work, eg "I did research in this area of law and was praised for that quality and I drafted ____" No need to say "I did all sorts of awesome save the poors!" work.

What about hours per week? Do you think interviewers would even bring up the amount of time spent working each week?
