Just try to get Lexis rep or something if you need a little extra cash.

It's not about the cash, it's about the useful legal experience.

The one thing that sucks is that I wasn't expecting to have this job, so I was already committed to being in a clinic, being a TA, being on the e-board of my journal, publishing my note and writing another article to (hopefully) be published, random extracurriculars...oh yeah and class. This year has been really crazy bc of it. But I would highly recommend working a legally-related job.


That's helpful, thanks.

Also on the trading side hours are more market driven so the clash with evening classes is less. I have worked many times in class though... I tell my professors about that at the beginning of the year.


Pretty awesome arrangement
