Which of you Chicago-area lawyers submitted this?
Anonymous 2L (Chicago): Any place in the Indians organization for someone with (or eventually with) a law degree?
Keith Woolner: This isn't so much a direct response to the question, but I have been astonished at the volume and quality of resumes that come in unsolicited to a major league front office. In fact, my first day of work in Cleveland I had two letters from prospective interns waiting for me. There are tons of lawyers, physicists, grad students from elite universities, and Wall Street quants (especially lately) that are willing to work in baseball for peanuts. It's very hard to be noticed in such a torrent. The odds are against you, but if you want to go this route, do something that sets yourself apart from the 15 covers letters that all express how much they love baseball and their dream is to work for a team. Demonstrate your value and your uniqueness.
