"Working as a research assistant is greatly helpful for your legal skills in exactly the manner in which the name states: research. Professors tend to write interesting (and sometimes provocative) material. So you not only have a multitude of interesting projects on which to research and write, but you also get to know a professor in a unique way. The relationship you develop with your professor is important for future reference letters, no doubt. But you also to get to view, from the inside, the ways in which really good writers go about their tasks. It’s all around a very meaningful experience."
