I need serious advice

Postby lil10isman » Wed Jan 13, 2010 12:11 am

I'm a 1L and I got an interview for a 2L associate position at a big firm in downtown Chicago through a contact. I am interviewing with one of the partners of the firm. Is there anything that I can say that can help me meet up to a more experienced 2L?

If the question comes up, "Why should I hire a 1L?", how should I answer that?

Thanks.

"Because there's no significant difference between a 1L and a 2L. Both of our legal educations are incomplete. However, I will promise that I will work my ass off for you and possess the same learning capacity as someone a year ahead of me. Plus I can order a mean coffee and am willing to work for free."

Nice hookup by the way.
