Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Thank you guys for the (mostly) constructive input. Actually it was very helpful to hear specific stories, because it gives context to the conflict issues that might surprisingly arise. All I can do is take that advice and apply it to my own circumstances and make a reasoned decision in light of my ...

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Oh honestly, I just didn't want them to think I was taking on too much or something. I'm not concerned they'll say no.

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Yeah, I guess I am big 'ole risk taker what I can say. I like to live life on the edge. the fast-track. If there's isn't a risk to my future, is it really worth the salary? that's my motto.

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Omg, you guys totally convinced me.

Okay, I'm going to put aside all your assumptions about how you think I handle time management, my loans, my academics, my shortsightedness, and whatever else.

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Okay, I see the point that re malpractice policies. However if the firm takes issue with me doing something which they don't put me on notice about in their manual or letter, would that be on me? You guys can continue to tell me the extra money isn't worth it, but it is. The only way it wouldn't be ...

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Can't you pick up a research assistant gig at your school for a professor? That should pay more than $10 an hour. Yeah but they pay 10-15 less than either of these options. If I am going to taking on extra hours, the marginal benefit has to be more than my marginal cost. Because my time is pretty c...

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

?? I do not understand this mentality. The argument is that I shouldn't work two jobs that together pay me better than other options and still fit around my schedule, when I have the monetary need. It's really baffling tbh And unless i'm actually violating a law or my employment terms, and there's n...

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

That first sentence is a little callous. The school pays jack shit and these places pay 10+ more an hour. And the flexibility of the second job to work remote is the only reason I could handle the total amount of hours I would be working between the two. I couldn't do the same if I had actually be i...

Re: Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

I mean the second one is really not going to be consistent. it'll probably be a few hours here or there and it's really just for one attorney. I'm not even sure she'll do a formal offer or anything. But you think there are conflict issues no matter what? even in separate states and two totally diffe...

Law Clerk at Two Jobs at Once?

Is that okay? Still a student. It would be in separate industries and the employers are in two different states with two different client bases (one only takes clients within the city and the I am 99% sure the other firm has no clients here). I highly highly doubt there would ever be a conflict. Do ...

Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

found a pretty bad typo in my cover letter that went out to a whole slew of places.. How bad are we talking? There was a guy at my school that sent out cover letters with literally “[generic firm]” instead of the firm name for one of his apps and ended up getting the job. You might be okay! Haha om...

Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

Before I started a bunch of 2/3Ls told me the social dynamic of law school is basically highschool 2.0. They weren't joking. I was wondering if it was only my school or not... what's crazy is that I don't remember undergrad being like this, so I don't understand why law school is. found a pretty ba...
