I’m a graduating senior studying Sociology and Business. However, my true passion is law. Although I am not studying law, I have taken course such as Introduction to Law and Business Law to help solidify my interest. After graduation I am moving to NYC and taking a year off before applying to law school. Within that year, I would really enjoy working for a law firm of any sort (small or large) to gain valuable experience before law school. I have begun the process of applying for jobs and find it difficult to obtain a paralegal/legal assistant position without attending law school first. I am searching for any advice a past Brandeis Alum may have to help me better understand how to acquire a job in the legal field. I appreciate any and all feedback!

Hello! I am a senior at Brandeis University graduating with a major in economics and minors in computer science and business. Economics had always been my favorite subject in high school, and the microeconomics class that I took with Professor Coiner only intensified my interest. Since then, I have studied abroad in the heart of London’s financial services sector where I was able to intern at a high street firm that provided accounting services for small businesses and startups. Now I am looking to apply the analytical skills that I have gained during these four years towards a position in the private sector. I am eager to work for a large firm, preferably in its marketing or accounting and finance departments. Any insight on how to successfully enter this field would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
