Law: Jobs

October 30, 2007

This week marks the beginning of the period in which 1L’s here can talk to the career services office about our job search.  For the next month, we can get ourselves educated on the who, what, where, why, when, and how of job searching, then, on December 1, we can contact firms.

This week is full of job search related events.  Today was a session on government positions, tomorrow is a general overview of JD careers (along with a friends birthday), then comes how to perform your job search, and a profile on small/medium sized firms.  All of this is designed to educate us on what all is out there and to make sure that even though that do not want or cant’ get (lets cross our fingers that this isn’t me) a big firm job will still have employement when summer rolls around.

All of this on top of finishing our closed memo, a journal subcite, and professors racheting up the workload.  I think this is the time of year when the class will start to seperate itself.  I am currently facing a general lack of motivation.  We just had break and I am really not interested in the cases I am reading and the law that I am learning (let alone putting it together to form any concept of what the law is).  I think those that can push through this and get to thanksgiving in good shape are the students that are going to rise to the top of the class, and those that stumble here will be the onces that fall, lets hope I am in the front group, or at least somewhere in the nice fat part of the curve.
