BigLaw firms in NYC all start in the summer. If that's indicative of other markets, you're probably out of luck.

Small market here. Biggest paralegal hiring is around april-june (graduation time) but it continues year round. Plenty of paralegals move on to law school/other grad school, so there should be places opening up in september. I would definitely try to interview now, and state upfront that you can't start until september.

FWIW: I interviewed for a paralegal job in mid-May, didn't get it initially, then got a call in July and started working in early August.
