No Law Journal + Big Law Job = Okay Future?

Postby library » Tue Apr 23, 2013 7:32 pm

I have a Big Law job, but I'm not on a journal, not on Moot Court, not really involved in law school at all except go to class, and do my HW. Do any of these prestigious extra-curricular activities matter for someone who has secured employment? I was thinking about just doing a ton of volunteer legal work during 3L to make up for the massive amount of extra time I would have and to just show what I was doing with my extra time. Thoughts?

I'm totally sorry in advance to those who are on journals, moot court, etc. and don't have employment yet. My intent is not to offend anyone. I just wanted general thoughts on my current situation. Thank you.

No. If you managed to explain away your lack of journal in a biglaw interview and landed the job anyway, you're set.
