How to Go In-House Straight from Law School

MotivationIf you’ve been following news coverage of the legal job market lately, you may be aware of a new development in legal hiring. In recent years, more and more companies have been willing to hire early-career attorneys to work in their in-house legal departments who are either new graduates or have just a few years’ experience. Gone are the days when landing an in-house position requires several years of prior law firm practice. So how can law students take advantage of this emerging trend and best prepare themselves to go in-house immediately or shortly after graduation?

  1. Choose Your Law School Classes Wisely
  2. Network with In-House Lawyers
  3. Get an In-House Internship
  4. Consider What Type of In-House Position Interests You Most
  5. In-House Careers are Becoming a Reality for New Grads

My First Mock Trial – A 2L Perspective

summer reading for law studentsFrom the Girls Guide to Law School, a 2L guest post from Shirlene Armstrong about her first mock trial experience:

As a 2L, I have the opportunity to participate in “professional experience” activities for credit, extracurriculars. These include (but are not limited to) moot court, mock trial, law review, journal, and/or contract drafting. Since high school, I always wanted to do mock trial but unfortunately never attended a school that had a program. Thus, I was really excited to have an opportunity to join the team. I tried out for mock trial at the end of my 1L year and was fortunate to receive a spot on the team. As such, my first trial experience was in the first semester of my 2L year during our in-house competition.
