The good: the billing requirements are ridiculously low. Around 1500 hours per year or roughly 30 hours per week. I have my own office with a nice view, my own parking spot, and a team of assistants at my disposal. I can telecommute if I need to and the office is actually family friendly - it's not a bald-faced lie told to get associates in the door. Plus, my salary is significantly higher than what public interest work pays.
The bad: nothing
So, you're probably wondering how a slacker like me, who is in the bottom half of her class, got this cushy law firm job. Remember my post about The Hidden Job Market? Well, I tapped it. I have a friend who has a firm, I reached out to him, and the rest is networking history.
