Unless you are an entrepreneur with funding and other resources available to you (including risk management) to start your own practice, you should find a niche or two among your interests, talents, and skill sets that you can offer to the legal profession. And the big secret in the entrepreneurial world is that as a business owner, you are still seeking to find a niche in the global marketplace but just with higher stakes — such as the livelihood of your staff and clientele, in addition to yourself and your family.
The legal system can greatly affect nearly every aspect of the society, may it be as simple as crossing a street or as complicated as buying a home. Lawyers form the backbone of our society's system. With the growing disputes that people face each day, the demand for lawyers to settle each case increases in number. This idea gives us a clear and better picture that law opportunities are always there to stay despite the fact that there is a high competition for law jobs due to the huge number of students graduating each year from law schools.
Recruiting season, in a fashion reminiscent of undergraduate fall rush, is the biggest event of the second year. Students begin their second year of law school armed with immaculate resumes and new interview wardrobes ready to meet the firms who will visit their campus to recruit next year's summer interns. Known as "summer associates," these interns will work for the hiring firms full-time during the summer break before their third year of school. Many students who take summer positions with law firms split their summers by working six weeks at one firm and six weeks at another, often in different cities. Government agencies and corporations also send recruiting teams to law school campuses.
