Split Summers

If you are uncertain what area of law is the best fit for you, consider a split summer.  In a split summer, you work half the summer for one employer and the other half for a second employer.  It is often difficult to find paid opportunities for a split summer, but if you are volunteering, employers are generally flexible.  For example, if you are undecided between family law and commercial litigation, volunteer the first half of the summer with a family law firm and the second with a commercial litigation firm.
