A decent amount of the 2Ls got job offers from OCI in the fall. But most people get their jobs through their own efforts. Last summer, most of the 1Ls worked somewhere, did research for a professor, or studied abroad.
The 1L workload is difficult, but it is manageable. First semester, you'll have Contracts I, Civil Procedure I, Criminal Law (each meeting 3 days a week), and Torts (meeting 4 days a week. You'll also have Legal Writing and Research I, which meets 4 days a week for about 2/3 of the semester. For your substantive classes, you'll receive about 15-20 pages of reading for each day the class meets (sometimes less, sometimes more). The first few weeks are hard because it's so new and it takes a lot longer to do the reading. The other hard time, as far as workload, is when an assignment is due for Legal Writing. It is graded at Wake, so people put a lot of effort into it (which I recommend since it's one of the most useful classes as far as what you'll do at work during the summer). Legal Writing ends in early November, so that gives you extra time to relax and study for finals.
I'm not sure what you mean by "electronic view book?"
