It basically says it's an offer for XXX amount, starting XXX month subject to some stuff (graduating, pre-employment checks), tells me which state bar I have to take, lays out benefits like bar stipend and moving expenses and then tells me how long the offer will be open for and tells me they hope I let them know as soon as possible. It doesn't say anything like this is binding or permanent. The more I look at it the more I agree with what everyone originally was saying that breaking this isn't a big deal.
That's because at-will employment cuts both ways. It's not an employment contract, it's the terms of employment with them if you choose to accept. Even by signing it, you're still at-will and can quit any time you like. All the offer is is the terms of employment should you choose to accept.
