Investigating under an Attorney

Postby itascot1992 » Mon Apr 13, 2015 10:19 am

Hope this is the right place and not legal employment bc i am a 0L.

I am doing private investigation work for a defense attorney this summer. I believe this means i don't have to do any certifications. I am curious if any TLS'ers have done anything like this. Did you like it? Any tips? Thanks in advance

Its an ok job, but a horrible career. Doesn't really help with law school admissions or jobs, but lead to some funny party stories.

I spent all of the the superbowl on that year's version of Yik Yak trying to trick someone who weny by the name Bookie Butt that I had a lost iphone of his, managed to subpoena him (and he actually complied with it) only for him to defecate himself on the stand.

Sounds like the makings of a good interview to me. (Not even kidding)
