Law schools are hiring for the 2019-2020 academic year, and there’s not much time to prepare.
In fact, the deadline to apply is not until September.
That means if you’re looking to fill a law internship position in 2018, it may be hard to get one in 2019.
Luckily, there are ways to help yourself prepare for the upcoming law school year.
Here are the top 5 ways to get ready for 2019 law school.1.
Apply NowFor 2019, the law school application process is currently underway, with a deadline of November 1.
You should submit your application by December 11, and you’ll have until January 11 to get an interview.2.
Prepare to be on the lookout for an interviewIn order to avoid a busy academic year that could make it hard to make an impact, law schools are also looking to hire graduates with a strong resume, which is where you can show off your skills.
Apply to law schools that are in the top 10% of the U.S. law school rankings.
For instance, a school in the bottom half of the rankings would likely have an interview that you can’t be turned down.3.
Find a Job With an Online SchoolIf you’re interested in getting a job at an online law school like Columbia Law School, you can use the search tool to look for an open position.
Many schools have job boards where job seekers can post jobs they are looking for, so you can get an idea of what is available.
In the meantime, make sure to check out the latest job postings on JobPage and LinkedIn to see what job postings are currently open.4.
Stay in Touch With Your Current Law SchoolIf your current school isn’t listed, make an appointment to check in with the current dean of the law schools.
He or she can also provide you with the email addresses and phone numbers of current and former law school students who may be interested in applying for positions.5.
Find an Application SpecialistIf you’d like to work with an application specialist at your current law school and are interested in hiring an online application specialist to assist you in making a strong impression, you should reach out to the school’s application department.
There’s usually a position posted online that is open to current students, and if you have a strong application, it’s a good idea to apply.
If you are interested, please send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “Applicant Application Specialist” and a short CV that includes your name, a phone number, and a link to your website.
