Letters of Rec for 1L SUmmer: Who? How?

Postby BarbellDreams » Sun Dec 19, 2010 7:05 pm

I guess its time for me to ask (read: beg) for letters of rec again. Wondering who you guys are asking and how you're approaching it. Most jobs I am looking at want professional or law professor letters of rec. I am straight out of undergrad and the closest "professional" job I had was from a retail store so academic letters are all I can muster up. I know law professors are preferred, but it seems like I didnt get close enough with any professor to be able to ask them for something like that. I was kind of close with my contracts professor and went to her office hours 4 or 5 times, but how do I approach her about getting a letter? Also, outside of her I wasn't really too close with any professor and am thinking of hitting up my undergrad mock trial coach for a letter. Advice?

What the hell kind of employer takes 1L's but expects them to find LORs in 3 months?
