2L Summer Externship with City?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jan 18, 2011 6:58 pm

Is this too "low" a position to take as a 2L? I had a paid 1L SA with a boutique law firm last summer but I really need WE in prosecution b/c that is what I want to do when I graduate.....do I have to find paid work at a prosecutor's office? If so, would I be better off at a county office or is it o.k. to work for a city? The city is closer to home and the county ones make for a more complicated and time consuming commute.

If I couldn't find a paid summer prosecutor job or a more prestigious unpaid gig, I would take it

Thanks. I guess my question is whether a city is less prestigious than a county clerkship?
