Being frugal will only get you so far in your quest to mitigate your law school debt. You also need to earn some extra income, but the pressures of law school can make that difficult. However, one of the most flexible ways to earn income while in school is becoming a Westlaw or Lexis Nexis Rep.
Westlaw or Lexis student reps are in charge of promoting their respective companies product. Whenever there is a training course, their job is to get as many people to come. Additionally, they spend a few hours a day in the computer labs answering other students’ questions about legal research.
Luckily, I snagged a job for next year with Westlaw. I’m really excited about it. They pay is pretty good and the hours are extremely flexible. Each rep puts in about 10 hours a week in the computer lab. I’ll be learning more about Westlaw which will help out in my career down the line.
Check with your school’s Westlaw or Lexis Rep to see if they plan on hiring for next year. You won’t regret it.
