You did everything right in law school: earned top grades, worked for a judge, scored that prestigious summer associate position in big law, and ultimately accepted the post-bar position of your dreams. But now you’re unemployed with a start date that keeps getting pushed back further and further due to pandemic-induced economic uncertainty. And now, you have pandemic-induced anxiety and not a clue what to do between the bar exam and your new 2021 start date.
