This One Ought to Be A No Brainer

Gee, what should  this advice seeker and recent grad (at NY Lawyer) do here?  Work for $19 an hour doing document review at a large firm in hopes of getting some experience?  Or continue to look for a more challenging permanent position?  Uh, what about the most obvious option:  working for yourself.   Even if you have doubts about finding clients, court appointed cases pay $60 or more in New York.  And you could also find lawyers to pay a bar admitted attorney at least $30/hr to perform legal research or writing or make a court appearance.  Plus, what better way to find a permanent position than to involve yourself with all of the networking needed to start a law practice?
