Andrew R. McCarthy (Akita-ken, 2005-08) is a law student at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law focusing on international trade, business, and tax.  He currently runs the blog JETs with J.D.s, an information source for current JET alumni law students and prospective law students for career paths and approaches within the current legal market.  For those considering law school and trying to comprehend the costs and the risks of such an endeavor, he also recommends The Law School Tuition Bubble.

With a New Year comes a renewed energy for Japanese-speaking law students to seek out their future employer. With firms still skittish about hiring and with the legal employment market as crowded as ever, in this post I share my experience as a JET with a J.D. looking for employment in the largest U.S. Japanese-English bilingual job fair. Even though the next one is a whole ten months away – there’s no time like the present to start preparing.

While plenty of other Japanese speakers and JET alums may already know about CFN, it is a surprisingly useful resource for law school students as well.
