If you don't ask, the answer will always be "no."

Impossible to gauge the correct answer without knowing the entire circumstances surrounding your position, but I will say this: if I'm an unemployed 3L, I'll be pulling every string and phoning in every connection I have to get a job. This appears to be a connection.

ETA: Also, what CW said in the post immediately following this one.

Be professional if you want to represent his law firm.

This is true for everything in life.

So damn credited.

Best case scenario: he offers you a position. Worst case scenario: he declines and you are back in the same spot you are in now. Seems like a no-brainer.

Well, of course I'm emailing, more looking for communication strategies (bragging of accomplishments, not so, etc.). I'll just wing it.

Thanks again.
