Jobs that one could work as a 2L for part time cash

Postby Sirius » Wed Apr 25, 2012 11:20 pm

Soon to be 2L. Possibly lost scholarship due to attached stips. No plans for journal and grades do not mean much as job secured after grad. Would it be insane to try and get a job for 2L/3L year and work 20-30 hours p/w to make up for lost scholarship?

Nah it's doable. I work 10-15 hrs now and could do more if I had to. Why no journal though?

B/C at this point I have just had enough of LS to be honest. I had a rough go at 1st semester as I was one of the unlucky few to not understand law school exams as well as the mass. Think I am doing better this semester but I still may come up short. I would end up losing around 18K in scholarships per year. I have a job so what is the point of journal, is the way I see it.

Does your 1l SA firm usually give offers for 2l?
