I know it's against ABA rules to work during your 1L year. However, William and Mary offers a fellowship to some students where they can get paid to do library work and other law school school "jobs." So I'm not sure how things like Federal Work Study programs factor into this equation. If it's a job at a local corner store or something like that, you definitely can't do it, however.
You can work up to 20 hours a week under ABA rules. Most schools strongly advise against it though.
