Depends on what types of jobs you are looking at. It's pretty easy to do a giant mass-mailing for judges; especially if your CSO provides you with the spreadsheets (what I did).
If you're trying to do firms, go through the NALP directory in your targeted state(s) and look for firms that hire 1L's. Most of them will say explicitly whether they do or not (if they don't, you're not getting a 1L SA there unless you know someone). Do not count on these jobs. If you want small firms, try running a Martindale search.
If you want PI/gov't, google things you might be interested (i.e. Attorney General's Office in your target state/region; prosecutor or public defender offices in your state/region, USAO's, etc.). City Law Departments are another good place to look/apply (i.e. NY Law Dept, Philadelphia Law Department, etc.).
