Re: Anyone considering going back to school?

I've thought about going back to school to pursue something I'd actually ENJOY versus bouncing around within law in hopes that I'll find something I don't hate. Unsurprisingly, the time and expense of changing careers completely is a huge deterrent for me. Has anyone thought about doing this? What ...

Interview advice for a fairly niche/alternative job....

Surprisingly, I applied to an academic law librarian position less than two weeks ago and found out I passed the screener today. I didn't even expect an acknowledgment of my application, let alone a Zoom callback. This is my first law librarianship interview. Could anyone who has done these before s...

Re: Anyone else consider law librarianship as a career?

Do the firm law librarian positions usual...

Anyone here pursuing law librarianship?

Didn't see a thread for this. I took a couple of advanced legal research courses taught by legal librarians during law school, and really enjoyed them. My understanding is that some places will hire those with just a JD, but that majority require an MLIS as well?
