Good ways to get a legal job during the school year?

Postby PutSumGravyOnIt » Wed Jul 11, 2012 12:41 am

0L here. I like the idea of steadily gaining legal experience, even if it's not a hotshot job, while going to school. I have a friend who worked on Kodak's legal team during 2L and 3L, though she got the job through personal connections. The experience seemed to serve her well during the post-grad real-job search. Are there other effective methods for getting a job during the school year?

There are tons of gov internships during the year. Also I know a few smaller firms that take on interns during the year. The CSO at your school should be able to point you in the right direction.
