Everything. 1L summers are pretty much standard everywhere. A few get firm SA's, some get government work, some do PI, some RA for professors, some do I-Law stuff, some intern for a judge, some do a mix of the above. With the exception for SA'ing for a firm it's not difficult to land a job that you want to do, although some will obviously require more effort than others (working for Brennan Center may be harder to land then working in some random legal aid office, RAing for "prestigious" professors will be harder than working for "a" professor). You will be flooded with info on what you need to do to land a job and to get funding etc. etc. throughout your time as a 1L.
