Rising 3L here with biglaw SA position in V20. Yes, start networking in home market w/attorneys that are alumni of your law school & undergrad and also any attorney contacts through your family/current job/friends. Ask them to go to coffee to chat about law school and any advice they might have. Attorneys love talking about their law school glory days and also they usually enjoy helping 0L's out (at least in my experience). Building this network now will come in handy when looking for a 1L or 2L gig, or even beyond. Keep in touch with them during school year - drop an e-mail a few times a year or grab lunch/coffee when you are back in town.
(Can probably do the same w/attorneys that are in the market you hope to go to after law school - just do it via e-mail if you're not in same town now as what you want for 2L SA or graduation job).
