How time consuming is interning for a judge?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Aug 08, 2012 11:41 am

Hey I'm an incoming 2L and I've accepted a position interning for a criminal trial court judge and talked about working about 10.5 hours per week.

The problem is the small firm I've done my summer internship at wants me to continue working a few days per week and has offered to pay me, and a little income would be nice. Plus I like the work. I'm currently enrolled in 5 courses (3 BAR classes, 2 electives), but I plan on dropping 1 BAR class. Also, I'm doing no journals/LR/moot court/mock trial. Also, I'm not likely to be interviewed for OCI, so I'm not concerned with finding a job that way.

How much work is the judge? Is it like LRW class where I will have tons of research and stuff to do outside of work?

Are 2L courses more time consuming or are they more or less the same?

lolwut. If you're working 10.5 hours per week for the judge, you're working 10.5 hours per week for the judge.
