When I think about law school, I think, “This was never what I expected.”

I sat down with Gerard Cicero, a 2L, this week to ask him a few questions about NYU Law from the perspective of a student.

The winter in New York is extremely long, but it is always the hottest season in law school in terms of searching for jobs.

Enjoy research and writing, but not sure what 1L summer job to apply for? Then seriously consider jamming with a federal judge this summer!

A couple days ago, a colleague asked our Facebook group a question on behalf of a friend: “What is the one thing you wish someone had told you before beginning your 1L year at NYU?” Notwithstanding the fact that the first poster replied “RUN AWAY,” the thread actually became a sort of constructive brainstorm on the part of 90 people who had suddenly found themselves halfway done with law school. So here below I reproduce some of the gems of the conversation.

I had no idea what to expect going into my summer position at the FBI. Heck, I wasn’t even sure I would be working there until two weeks before my expected start date—they were still adjudicating my clearance and talking to every roommate, neighbor, and employer I had interacted with in the last seven years. When I got the email at the end of May that yes, I would be allowed in the building, and no, they didn’t uncover anything they wanted to arrest me for, I breathed a big sigh of relief—and immediately commenced worrying about everything else.

Most 1Ls, by May, look forward to putting the law library behind them. For research assistants, however, the library soon becomes a second home. Here’s what I thought about my summer pretending to be a law professor in NYU’s research assistant program.

The Brooklyn Law Incubator & Policy (“BLIP”) Clinic’s first-ever Legal Hackathon made waking up before 9:00 on a Sunday morning worth it. Going to law school at NYU puts on tap a legal community and resources that you really cannot fully contemplate until you actually arrive here.

Preparing for finals is not the only way you can opt to spend your spring break at NYU Law. These next few entries include stories of how two NYU Law students chose to spend their spring breaks—one to explore legal careers in Asia, and the other to volunteer legal assistance in Alaska.

First year law students have the privilege to choose where they want to work for the summer – not simply wherever will take them. Here are some of the resources available to NYU Law students.

There are many aspects of law school – particularly 1L year – that closely resemble high school: the different crowds, the feelings of insecurity, the terrible cafeteria food. The parallels continue into 2L year.

My internship at the Newark Law Department ended in mid-August, and looking back, I realize I learned several career lessons. One of the most important: Whenever a staffer offers you a chance to work on a project, jump at it. […]

Fact: in law school, you will receive lots of email.  Also, at some point, you’ll overlook one that is of critical importance. Last February, I received an email about an internship.  I skimmed the email, and saw something about Georgia, […]

My internship at the Ghana Center for Democratic Development is drawing to a close, and so it’s a good time to look back and think about the projects I’ve done, and what I’ve learned during my internship.
