One possible fallback position should I fail to find a job is to simply hang a shingle and sell my legal services on my own. To that end, today I got up at the crack of still-dark, got gussied up, and headed downtown to a King Co. Bar Association CLE aimed at solo practitioners and small firms. Since I'm not technically a lawyer yet, I got a highly discounted rate on the seminar. There were talks on the pros and cons of various business entities, how to make a business plan, how to set up and manage IOLTA client trust accounts, and client intake and management. Overall there was a lot of good information. While the prospect would still be pretty daunting, I feel that I could fairly confidently set up either a solo practice or a small LLC or PLLC... heck, even an S Corporation, and I would know where to find the resources I would need to make it work.

I would much rather some nice software company hire me as in-house counsel, or perhaps some firm, but in this economy and job market I'm hedging my bets as much as I can.
