Thanks! Do you mind sharing where such in house legal internship opportunities can be found?

I've applied to every patent opening in the country I've seen and heard nothing. Am I just screwed by my resume of all patent related stuff at all the non-patent firms in applying to? It's abundantly clear that my sole focus was patent law and the only reason I'm applying to these places is because I'm a massive failure. The faculty I spoke to at my T30 before deciding on it said with my background I wouldn't have a problem finding a job. Now that I know that was a lie am I just screwed?

Hi all,

I graduated in May- failed the NY bar- retaking in Feb. When is the best time to start mass mailing- now (early dec) or should I wait until jan? Well aware I'm very late in the game.

Also am I interested in an "associate" position or a "law clerk" position?
- Sorry for the basic question- I was told to ask for law clerk positions bc I won't be barred- but I'm fine starting work after I take the bar/even get results- I just can't afford to move to NY for a law clerk position...

Anybody know if it matters whether I put education at the top or bottom? Been practicing for about 1.5 yrs. Considering I am still junior, I am thinking education on top still. Please share if this is a red flag. Thank you.

Would anyone be able to show me where I could get a list of any mid tier firms in Miami and Tampa FL, just to mass mail? Specifically any that focus on or have employment and labor law as a practice area.

Top 5 school, but bottom half of class.
