Two Useful Guides for Summer Interns
For law students venturing out into the real world this summer, here are two resources to pave your way:
- Transitioning from One-L to Summer Legal Work Podcasts. Suffolk University Law School's legal research and writing program has produced this series of 19 podcasts. Available through Suffolk's iTunesU, each podcast features a different legal writing professor from law schools throughout the United States. Each professor offers practical advice on real-world topics such as "creating a research file," "understanding your clerical help" and "professionalism in electronic communication." The series was produced by Kathleen Elliott Vinson, director of the school's Legal Practice Skills program, and Gabriel H. Teninbaum, assistant professor of legal writing. Suffolk Law's dean, Alfred C. Aman Jr., not only provides the introduction to the series, but also -- according to Jeff Lipshaw at Legal Profession Blog -- provides the musical background for each segment, drawing on his second life as a jazz drummer.
- Tips for summer associates. Launched just one month ago, the Career & Professional Development Blog, part of the Law Professor Blogs Network, is focused on providing advice to law students who are searching for public and private summer associate and law clerk positions and to lawyers who are making changes in their careers or seeking career alternatives. To that end, the blog's authors have already contributed a number of posts of particular use to law students starting summer jobs. Among them: Top Tips for Summer, 5 Stages of Working with Support Staff, Facebook Professional Success Story and 12 Bar Exam Tips.
