Quite frankly, Legal Authority is not something that every law student in the United States should be using.And not every law student Legal Authority works with gets a job using our service.
However, thousands of law students do get jobs using our service each year.We work with well over 100 law students per week who are seeking their first position.Our service is comprehensive: Our attorneys counsel law students about appropriate positions for them to apply to, rewrite their resume and cover letter, and provide them with professionally printed cover letters and envelopes to sign and mail.The average cost of our service is most often less than $500 for every law student we assist.
Our attorneys generally spend at least an hour talking with each individual law student and then several hours redoing their resumes and cover letters.In addition, we spend far in excess of $1 million each year maintaining a database that contains the information students need to apply for jobs:What type of practice areas is the student interested in? What type of employer does the student want to work for—a law firm, the federal or state government, a public interest organization, a corporation? Where does the student want to live? What size law firm does the student want to work for?
Certainly, on-campus interviewing, relationships with employers, and other means are good ways for students to get jobs—they always have been and always will be.However, we believe that our service is a profoundly effective way to ensure that law students find the precise job they are looking for when this job might not be available from more traditional sources.There is strength in numbers and because thousands of students use our service each year, we are able to offer a service far more effective than many law schools have the time, or the money, to offer.
