Here's a fine bit of law student humour from Omar Ha-Redye of Law Is Cool:
How to Get a Law Job
Thank you for your letter of *. After careful consideration I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me employment with your firm. This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.
Despite *’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my needs at this time. Therefore, I will initiate employment with your firm immediately following graduation. I look forward to seeing you then. Best of luck in rejecting future candidates.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Ha-Redye last week at my favorite, local caffeine dispensary. He penned a few thoughts on the weekend about our discussions.
Suffice to say, we have begun planning some interesting concepts for the fall of '08.
It was my first face-to-face encounter with one of my blogger friends (usually we do our linking online). I hope it will not be the last.
