Preparing for the Law Firm Experience

If you will be clerking with a law firm this summer, schedule an appointment with your Career Services Counselor to discuss how you should prepare.  We can educate you regarding how law firms work and provide tips to ensure a successful experience.  For example, always pin down a due date for each assignment and be mindful of which assignments are billable.  Also, if you have an interest in a particular case, express it to your supervising attorney, and you may have an opportunity to work on it.  In addition, conduct informational meetings with attorneys in the firm to learn more about the local legal market.
