Not to mention the invaluable connections and attorneys you get to meet during the cocktail parties and firm events....you basically get to live THE LIFE for the summer (well obviously work hard play hard)
And, for those who care, the chance to apply for a judicial clerkship after 1L??
Person: you need to know most law students would KILL for an opportunity like SEO. If you don't wanna take it, please step out and let other future senators and judges take it instead
I thought SEO interns were paid 1,000 a week. I mean you are a 0L, why would they pay the full SA price?
Because they pay everyone who is gonna be a lawyer and works for them pro-rated 1st year pay. SEO brings them some of the best diversity applicants out there, many of which will be the best diversity potential hires. They want to employ you, so greasing the wheels a little goes a long way.
They don't pay SEO members prorated 1st year pay. Sorry to burst your bubble.
