Is Law Students Connect a Good Idea?

Post by urbancowboy » Tue Aug 02, 2022 6:49 pm

Will my firm be concerned about me providing legal services during 3L? Are there any ethical issues?

No ethical issues unless you work for someone adverse to someone your firm is representing, but I feel like this is super cheesy and would lower your personal brand. This site literally prides themselves on “looking below the top third”, so I mean, yeah that’s not a great look.

Ideally you could just go with Robert Half or some other legal temp outfits if you really want work that pays but somehow do not have connections to get it without whatever that site is.

Just ask your firm. If you want to return to that firm, and they're cool with you freelancing during 3L, do it. Do not worry about how it'll be perceived, if only because the people who matter have already hired you.
