Very cool @anon! Good luck!
We have a summer student who is in college, I think just finished first year. The senior partner brought her in. I am pretty sure she is getting paid. Admittedly she is doing grunt work like covering reception or scanning. But one week she just stopped showing up without telling anyone because she wasn’t happy that she wasn’t doing “real work”? She’s back now. I don’t know what the partner and her had arranged when she first started. He probably didn’t, haha. But I feel like an “old person” (haha typical millenial), like this is a good way to get your foot in the door or a reference.
