I am a law student half way through his academic career as such at a law school located in central Florida. I wanted to get some practical experience working in a law office - pay is not an issue. I do have a full-time job working for a timeshare company and would only be using this position to supplement my legal experience and pad the resume.

If anyone is located in or around Orlando, could you please let me know of any opportunities available in the field?

If you are not located in central Florida, would anyone be willing to furnish some advice as to how to get these sorts of opportunities?

I have extensive experience working in a office environment. I am highly educated (sometimes to my detriment) with two bachelors and two masters' degrees. I can furnish a resume upon request.

    Welcome. Unfortunately, breaking into law can be quite difficult, especially in a bad economy. I think you are on the right track, but be prepared to send out a lot of resumes.

      I am prepared to and have resources to go independent if I have to. But I would perfer to learn the procedure from someone else.

        Understood and a good attitude. I understand you are interested in patent law. It use to be a very fun area for a technical person. Patents and inventors are under attack and this has caused this area to become less fun.

          Thank you for the kind words. As a child of Cuban immigrants who didn't speak English, I have spent my entire life as a problem solver. I am optomistic that the skills will translate.

    J,

    I have an interest in property (both intellectual and real) law, employment law, patent law, probate, and civil rights/constitutional law issues.

    Why do you ask?

      I sent you a private message recently. Contact my friend Brian Steinberger about interning in his patent law office in Merritt Island, FL. He commutes regularly to Orlando and does UCF's patent law work.

        Either this browser is broken, or I'm looking in the wrong place. I do not see your messages. I will try it out on my home machine. Thank you so much for the lead.

          I clicked on the private message button. I had always sent private messages in a different way. Check your e-mail associated with your Galt's Gulch account. All of these messages plus the private ones should be there.
