Part-time graduate school during first year of practice

Postby Jedacruz » Fri Feb 08, 2019 1:42 pm

I have a somewhat unique circumstance and I'll be finishing up the last few classes and the final year internship of an MSW following law school. Is it possible to work as a lawyer, assuming I get a job during law school, while finishing part-time studies in a not very demanding graduate program.

For context, I'll be graduating from BU law.

I think its definitely possible. Depending on what kind of law firm you end up at, you'll probably be running on fumes, but given that it's not very demanding and will probably have its own deadlines, I imagine it will give you an outlet and some semblance of a life outside of the law.
