Re: Unlocking 1L SAs

* At the time I wrote this, NALP was enforcing a December 1st application timeline. That is no longer in effect, but I will update when we better understand what that change means for those markets that act/move quickly. Anyone have an update on this? A few 1Ls at my school have reached out to me, ...

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

That's fine if you want to try to do both jobs at once, but you ABSOLUTELY need to disclose it to both employers. +1 Also, you might not really care about the morality of what you're trying to do, but if you get caught, you're going to be in serious trouble. You could get fired, and then you'd prob...

Which bar exam should I take?

I graduate in May 2020 and will be working at a firm in Texas. I just found out that while Texas is not offering the UBE until February of 2021, they will begin to accept UBE scores in December 2019. As such, I could take the bar in July 2020 in a UBE state and transfer my score to Texas. I can subm...

Re: OCI Post-1L SA

A lot of people who do 1L SAs are looking to trade up, so it’s not like firms will have never seen this before. I applied to several firms after my 1L SA ended, and I said I was switching because I wanted to be at a larger office, at the headquarters (for firms headquartered in my market), and wante...

Re: Applying for the same firm in multiple locations as a 1L?

I wouldn't apply to multiple locations of the same firm if you're applying to ties-sensitive markets (so, anywhere besides NYC). I'm pretty sure that applying for multiple positions is okay--one firm I applied to had 3 programs (SA, diversity scholar, and then another split summer type thing) and en...
