It’s all doom and gloom when talking about the current state of the legal market. New hires are down. Law school graduates are up. Instead of law firms, people are working at Starbucks (maybe they can start a new “Coffee and legal Consultation” promo).
People always give advice on how to get that nice, cushy, Big Law job after graduation. Get straight A’s (which is hard with law school grading being so capricious). Go to a top school. Earn a spot on law review.
All good advice, even if significantly easier said than done.
But what if I told you there’s something you can do right now that would increase your chances of landing a job after graduation almost as much as anything else?
