‘Tis the season to be jolly, or, if you’re a 1L, to breathe a deep sigh of relief that you made it through your first semester of law school. Congratulations! It’s no small feat, and I certainly hope you will take some time to enjoy a much-deserved break. However, if you don’t already have a summer job lined up, there are a few things you can do to make productive use of your time off after you’ve finished binge-watching the next installment of Making a Murderer or Bodyguard (highly recommended).
Back in June, I wrote about what incoming 1Ls could do during the summer to set the stage for the 1L job search. If you haven’t done any or all of these things, now is a great time to tackle them. Below you’ll find further guidance for both 1Ls and 2Ls on each of the areas covered in the original post, along with a few additional suggestions.
