Does “law-related employment” on the NY bar application include working as a clerical temp in a law firm?

If so, I would have to get about 50 affidavits filled out. If they consider the temp agencies and not the law firms to be my employers, I would still need about 15 affidavits. And I can’t remember most of them. I don’t wish to ask the bar this question for fear they will say "yes."

    If it was strictly a clerical job, then usually not. It would have to be a law clerk, research assistant, paralegal, etc. – those types of jobs that are normally considered "law-related employment."

    Technically, your "employer" during that time was the temporary employment agency.

    There are a lot of potential problems for minors in work, many of them legislative, moms and dads are required to be watchful about that. There is a lot of help from the website in the box below on this topic, they also have help for all people who are looking for work, or who are required to change careers.
