Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we have ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones with us to talk about the timeline of the 2L job hunt.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Should you be concerned if you're a 2L without a summer job by mid-February?
  • Should you start looking for a 2L job in your 1L year?
  • The typical timeline for different types of jobs - BigLaw, public interest, small firms, etc.
  • What you can start doing to get a jump-start on looking for a job
  • The importance of grades when it comes to job searching
  • Is it worth doing OCI if it's a long-shot option?
