- Law Student Jobs
LawStudentJobs.net is my way of helping those law students out there who are looking for internships and jobs for the summer and during the school year. Having gone through the search during 1L year, and then having gone through recruitment season at the beginning of my 2L year, I know just how hard it is to find a position, especially in these tough economic times when positions that used to be there are no longer available.
