LawStudentJobs.net was created to help out law students looking for internships and jobs for the summer and during the school year. Run by recent law school graduates, we know exactly how hard it is to find positions, especially in these tough economic times when positions that used to be there are no longer available.
"When I applied to positions through my law school’s career services website, and when I applied to positions directly on my own, out of maybe 300 applications, I had received about 5 interviews. That’s a horrible ratio. When I applied to two reputable companies through lawstudentjobs.net, within 2 days, I received 2 phone calls for interviews. A week later, I started my new job." -- "The Sherwinator", What's Good Blog
