Judicial internship and a small RA gig for a little spending money (since Boalt's public interest stipend excludes judicial internships :evil: ).

As for grades, they weren't considered by the judge in hiring. I am a non-trad with military background and that seemed to be a plus (though others I'll be working with are more traditional).

Judicial Internship SDNY. T2, no spring grades yet but had a 3.9 in the fall. I don't know what % that puts me in because my school waits until the full year is over to rank.

Judicial internship. Unpaid, but absolutely LOVING it. We had a pretty big case in the media my first day here. AND I get to wear suits everyday, which I consider a positive, unlike some of you :D

Post a new category and I'll add it.

New categories added, and you can vote more than once (thanks to the mod who fixed it while I was at work).


Hey add University General Counsel (legal) or General Counsel or something. I though about just placing that in Government Agency (bc it is a public university), then I thought about placing it in Business (but I figured business was for non-law stuff). However, I don't think either of those is appropriate.

It won't let me add anymore categories, however, I added it to business/ other. Sorry!

Haha. [Insert whine here about why General Counsel should not be equated to the dreaded "business" category]

Research assistant, 4 credits in courses, and my full-time job in the military (overseeing all counterintelligence collections management for the AF... in which I have little experience, so I'm going to a bunch of training courses around the area as well). Also trying to find some time to spend with my wife (who's going through some medical issues right now) and 2-yr-old daughter.

Oh, and hoping to land an SA offer so I can pay off some of these wonderful law school loans.

Terrified of this summer, honestly...
