Ideas about potential employment for an undergraduate.

Postby DSD2013 » Sat Jan 11, 2014 8:14 pm

Hey everyone,

I would like to work in some way or another for a lawyer this summer and get some experience. Does anyone know how I would go about doing this and whether or not there exist paid positions for undergraduates who do some type of work for lawyers? Thank you.

I have no idea about being paid but I know that you can volunteer at any public interest firms. Then you'll be working with attorney's, can get experience in multiple areas of law, and if you're good, references. Plus, you can spin it to show dedicated interest with public interest should private firms not pan out.

You would go about doing this by getting to know lawyers through networking and letting your interests be known to them.

There exist paid positions for undergraduates who do some type of work for lawyers.
