Do you think you should hold a job while enrolled in law school? Why or why not?

How did you do in your first semester?Soundman32 wrote: ↑Wed Jan 27, 2021 6:16 pmPersonally I think it depends on the person. Whilst I was doing my undergraduate studies, I held a full-time job. I understand that law school is different and requires a great deal of time commitments. I’m in my 1L and think that if I didn’t work I’d go insane considering all universities are shutdown, law school would be all I do.
Most law students will work during 2L and 3L in internships, clinics, etc. But the reason most people advise against working during your first year--particularly your first semester--is that you don't know how the time spent on that job is going to impact your performance until it's too late.
