RE: Law school prohibitions on working during your 1L year -- don't tell them. Problem solved.
Yes, if you are willing to make sacrifices, then you can absolutely work through law school, so long as you understand that the sacrifice may be employment.
It seems like deceiving one's law school would be a poor choice.
It's not post-grad employment that you have to sacrifice. I was thinking more along the lines of your social life. And, frankly, there are benefits to restrictions on the amount of time you spend on law school. A lot of 1Ls spend 80 hours plus a week and do poorly because they worked in an incredibly foolish manner. You should be able to justify why you are spending time on something.
You're not deceiving the school; you're not informing of something that is none of their business. Alternatively, you could tell the school what you're doing, then ignore their ineffectual protests.
