Take a lawyer to work
4:41 pm, January 11th, 2013
Our colleagues at The Blog of the Legal Times, and another legal blog, Law And More, have taken note of a Craigslist ad by a Stratford, Conn., law firm that will allow newly minted lawyers, including those who have not yet passed their state bar exams, to shadow their attorneys – for a fee.
Baby lawyers would pay a monthly fee to the firm for the privilege of “watching the day to day practice of law” and observing legal proceedings.
Noted the Legal Times blog: “it is like ‘Take Your Child to Work Day,’ but if your child paid you. Actually, it is more like ‘Take Someone Else’s Child to Work Day,’ and the child’s parents pay you since the child/lawyer is unemployed.”
Not to mention that there is no admission fee for court hearings.
