Paying Jobs

    These jobs are only limited by one’s imagination.  Students do everything from work in-house at corporate legal departments to assisting a small solo-practitioner.  You can look for paying jobs on your own or get assistance through your law schools career counseling section, or both.  You will need to start your search early though.  There will be communications back and forth, interviews, etc., all of which are time consuming.  Many employers prefer to wait and hire only law students who have completed 2 years of law school. 
    Paying jobs frequently provide very important connections to the legal community later on.  Further, the job could work into something for the summer after your 2nd year as well.
