Chapter 8 will hopefully shed some light on how law students with unpaid summer jobs manage to support themselves. It's something that has baffled me for quite some time. Quite some time indeed.
I mean, come on, people. What's your secret? The PILF grants max out at $5,000 and aren't available for government work (including judicial externships). And even if you could get the grant, how the hell do you live in L.A. for three months on $5,000? I have a paying job and I'm still squeaking by. Of course, a large portion of my paycheck goes to expensive gourment donuts, but that's beside the point.
So what is it, folks? Are L.A. strip clubs filled with law students on both sides of the railing? Are you all living with your parents? Is there a money fountain somewhere on Wilshire West? If so, tell me where it is, 'cause I want some.
