Work is fun!

So who says you can't get a cool job as a law student?

I thought it was cool when Jacuzzi was hiring through OCI a couple of months ago (free hot tub, anyone?), but this latest listing might be the greatest job of all: Penthouse Media Group's in-house legal department needs a law clerk. Among the qualifications: "Must be comfortable w/adult entertainment content (i.e., nudity and explicit language."

I wonder if you took the job if you could submit a copy of Penthouse as a writing sample later when you apply for a judicial clerkship or something...

Why would you submit a copy of Penthouse? The job is for a law clerk, not for a articles writer.

Miami Law brilliance!

Wow, anon, you really are stupid, aren't you? It's a joke. It's making light of the situation. It's fine if you don't find my jokes funny. I have no problem with that.

Yes, I am intelligent enough to know that if I worked there I would not submit a copy of Penthouse Magazine as my writing sample for a future job application. Really. I knew that even before I wrote the post. I fully comprehend that the person who has this job will not be writing for the magazine. A 12 year old could figure that out.

I bet you're fun to be around what with how seriously you take yourself. I pity someone who goes through life taking everything so literally.

Hey porn freak - I didn't take your joke literally, it was just a stupid joke that made no sense whatsoever. Get back to moaning and bitching, it's what you do best.

enjoy the summer!

Your OCI actually allows employers to participate who are only looking for law clerks? OMG that is incredibly lame. These guys aren't even hiring lawyers, and your OCI lets them participate. Pathetic. I'm glad I go to a good law school (top 14) and not a pathetic one like yours.

Why would anyone submit a copy of the magazine they were working for as a writing sample? The writing sample is supposed to be your own work. What does the magazine have to do with that?

I just don't get it, sorry.

Made you post...he he

Anon sounds very insecure through his posts. OCI should list every open law clerk or associate position. I think it is lame that his "top 14" school does not provide him these job listings.

In any event, I think the job sounds really fun for the summer. I would do it just for the fact that you would have something interesting to talk about on interviews.

Anon 11:44, it's Ok. I'm glad you apologized for your stupidity though. I accept your apology. You're a stupid person. No worries. The world has room for stupid people, so don't be too hard on yourself.

I'll just repeat what I posted above and add another point. It's a joke. People who aren't stupid comprehend when something is a joke, even an un-funny joke. Since you're stupid, you don't grasp the concept of a joke. It's OK. Live and learn, buddy.

In any case, one possible reason you would submit a copy of the magazine is to show a sample of something you have worked on. You could perhaps discuss what was and wasn't a violation of obscenity (or whatever others that apply) statutes, and what types of debates you had about what material did and didn't make the cut, memos you wrote about how the section on say, a certain body part, didn't get published, but this fairly raunchy section did.
Oh, and to the smart commenter who goes to the 14th-ranked school: Guess what? I'm also glad you don't go to my law school. You're obviously an arrogant, insufferable jerk.

The other Anons sound like wimpy little geeks that would not know what to do at a job like the one are talking about.

Wow... sounds like you're getting your share of trolls too. Keep telling them to go fuck themselves... little chickenshit douches like this need to get a life.

I personally recognized it as a joke right away (not sure if it was because I am "not stupid" or just can spot a joke), and actually thought it was pretty funny. Especially when I pictured a Federal Appellate judge opening up your application, and a nudie mag spills out. Awesome.

Fight the Haters!

Who even says that they go to a "top 14" law school?

Wouldn't you say "top 15" or "top 20"?
