Mind listing these, or telling me where I can find them? I am starting from scratch
Is it basically a matter for career services, or do most 1Ls go digging on their own, pulling in any networks they may know, etc.??
1. Do not worry about this now. It is mid-Sept. Most gov/PI jobs do not even start to hire 1Ls (or interview, for that matter) until post-New Years. So, chill.
2. Your career services office should have something
that lists employers who hired people from your school in previous years. Ours is online, for example, and we can search the index by location, type of employer, etc.
3. If you want to work for the feds for a summer:http://www.law.arizona.edu/career/honorshandbook.cfm
(you need a subscription, but your school should have one...lists a ton of gov jobs)http://www.justice.gov/oarm/
(DOJ...doesn't look like they have the positions up yet, though...it will fill out, eventually, but not soon)
Any USAO (United States Attorney's Office) you can apply to directly by going to Google, typing in "United States Attorney's Office, whatever state/district
," and checking out their individual site. HTH
Anyway, stuff really isn't up, yet, because it is far too early. They are only doing 2Ls, atm.
