So started a part time law clerkship, not sure about it, might ditch it for less stress or a better offer. Did get paid though. Will I have to list the job on my bar app, if I quit? What do I do?

Yes but "he quit" isn't going to get you in trouble. So what are you worried about.

I don't know how this is going. What if I get fired? Or, what if I quit without explaining myself really, and then get another job? It would just suck to have to go there again after bouncing.

For IL and NCBE C&F all I had to do is list the employer, not go talk to them about my employment. So i don't get what you are worried about here.

In my state, I think I have to list and get them to sign something.

Even if you do, they just sign it. It's not like you have to beg them or anything. If they have interns, its somethign they do on teh reg.

If I quit, will I have to tell a firm that may want to hire me later?
