Lulu and oppose:
The jobs that you speak of as summer associates are very
highly competitive and only available to those actually in law school, which oppose is not.
Plus, you interview for them in the fall and winter.
Many qualified law students at excellent law schools fail to secure one of these highly coveted positions. Unfortunately, I speak from experience
I suggest that oppose try his/her hand in the kitchen of a restaurant during college years to see whether its a good fit.
