he's in the Appeals division - is that a good one? do they hire?

Also, if you know a 2L summering there now from your law school, ask them to put in a good word for you if you plan to apply for real.

appeals doesn't hire straight out of law school. they have taken some deferred associates though. who turns down free labor?

nyc law dept. varies in desirability/work load by division. environmental, affirmative lit, general lit, admin, appeals, legal counsel are more desirable. those divisions, alas, hire way fewer people (as in maybe 1 a year vs 10+ a year) than torts, special fed, and family court.
