Has anyone done two jobs during law school? like a clinic/externship and a legal internship in one semester? How was that? Was it too exhausting?

My school wouldn't let you extern and do clinic. It's a lot of work OP.

I did clinic and that plus classes was enough to take up most of my time.

I did it 3rd year. My clinic was a nonprofit/IP clinic, my internship was in house with a Fortune 500 (IP dept). It wasn't that bad, but my third year wasn't very demanding. The clinic was a joke.

Did not work 2 jobs. However, work more than 40 hours a week during law school full time this past semester (fall 3l). It’s not bad.

I had 2 jobs during 2-3L year. Unpaid internship during the day, bartending at night.

I had 3 jobs. Tax clinic, paid internship, and a law clerk job at a tax firm 3 days a week. The firm gig eventually fired me after I refused to work more than 3 days, but that was after a year. I was also on a journal, so that sucked up more time. I'd say it was hard, but very doable, and I had plenty of free time.
