Legal Secretary: Great for Law Students?
In this tough economy, many law students are having trouble finding their dream careers at large law firms. The jobs simply are not available at large law firms anymore, as they once were. There was a time when law firms were literally handing out high paying jobs to law students in literally any specialization. That time has long since been over. Now, it is very rare that a first year law student finds any sort of job at a large law firm. However, many first year law students still spend countless hours every year trying to find these sorts of jobs. This article will discuss the best ways a law student can increase his or her chances of finding a great job at a law firm. One of the best ways a law student can get in at a large law firm is by taking on smaller jobs, such as that of a legal secretary or mail organizer. Working in one of these areas, a law student can easily get to know other lawyers, and most importantly, the partners of a law firm. At a law firm, the partner will likely be responsible for hiring a new lawyer. It is the sole decision of a partner to decide who will work at a law firm and who will not work at that law firm. Thus, it is very important for a law student to make a great first impression on the partner of a law firm. Becoming a legal secretary is a great way for a law student to show a partner at a law firm that he or she can handle the fast paced atmosphere of a firm. A legal secretary position is truly the best way one can make a good impression with a law firm. Many law students find that they impress partners at a law firm so much by working as legal secretaries, that they are soon hired as associates at the firm. Many law students even find that being a legal secretary gives them great skills they will have for the rest of their lives as associates. They learn to be well organized and efficient.

How much does a partner in a Canadian law firm earn?
It really depends on the city, firm, and partner. It also depends on if you're an equity partner or income partner, and not all firms make that distinction. Equity partners get a cut of the equity (what the firm makes in a year) so it depends on how the firm as a whole and all its employees are doing. At a small firm it's not much, but at these big 200 person firms, it can be significant, keep in mind though bigger firms have more patners. Each firm has a slightly different partnership structure though, some are more "top heavy" than others, in which case the partners have to work more to pull their own weight. By contrast where there are few patners they can work less and focus on business development while the associates work.
