Mariella's staff pick

MARIELLA'S PICK: Legal Assistant at Dovel & Luner, LLP

This struck me as a good opportunity for pre-law students wanting to take a couple of years off prior to enrolling in law school.  Tasked with conducting research and analysis, crafting arguments, and creating multimedia presentations used in court before judges and juries, you would get important exposure and experience in the work of this boutique law firm specializing in complex business litigation and trial practice.  The salary is competitive and the opportunity to be in sunny Santa Monica, CA a plus!
