Do it Yourself Job-Making

The WSJ Law Blog reports that a Denver area solo partitioner who generally does smaller-scale criminal work, like drunk-driving and drug-possession representations, will be "spearheading the defense of accused terrorist mastermind Najibullah Zazi." The Denver attorney recently placed an advertisement with the University of Denver law school seeking an unpaid intern to help with legal research.

Boalties, this may be a rare moment of opportunity. Here is your plan of attack:
Step 1. Apply for the position. Sure, he'd prefer someone in Denver, but he's likely to take all the help he can get, don't you think? Be sure to put our school's undeserved reputation to work - who wouldn't want a crazy liberal pinko commie terrorist sympathizer Berkeley student on the case?

Step 2. Track your hours. All of them.

Step 3. When the case ends, when you land paying work, or when the statute of limitations is about to run (whichever comes first) sue the Denver attorney for back pay.
Shazam! Instant paying job. Who knows if it would actually work (and in fact there is a good chance it wouldn't), but I will personally guarantee to anyone who actually dares to try it a "guest intern" spot to blog about their experience at N&B.

Is that a paid guest spot you're offering?

I think it's more of an opportunity for Brooklyn Law students now.
