Gov/nonprofits don't have to pay people. Firms can't not pay people. I'm sure most small firms would pay their 1L interns nothing if it was legal so I think getting almost double min wage is pretty good.
I'm curious what you mean by the bolded.
Department of labor made a release that seemed to imply that unpaid interns at a law firm are a no no.
I should forward that to the firm near me that wanted 10 weeks, 40+ hours a week, with no pay.
