What looks better on a resume?

Postby BarbellDreams » Mon Mar 29, 2010 11:35 pm

During 2L:

1.) Doing a Clinic.

2.) Law Review.

3.) Finding part time unpaid internship with a firm.

4.) Clerking.

Please rank and if possible provide some insight as to how employers generally view each of these three categories. I am currently thinking about what I should focus on during 2L.

As a completely uneducated 0L I'd say

1) Law Review
2) Clerkship
3) Clinic
4) Unpaid internship

I would say small print, written in blood that sells your soul to the company would look the best :lol:

Definitely Law Review >>> anything else, but certain clinics may be a big plus for certain career paths (appellate, for instance... I'd image a judge who you've argued before may be more inclined to take you as a clerk or recommend you to fellow judges assuming you argued/wrote well)
