ACCOMMODATIONS
One thing goes for all accommodations: it's pretty hard to find an apartment or a room in San Francisco. For that it's highly recommended, to reserve an accommodation before you arrive. Basically, living in San Francisco is very expensive, the monthly rents raise from $500 (stroke of luck) up to $700 ( this is the norm ).
Flat-sharing is another possibility. Such rooms are even cheaper($400) and often nicer. But you have to consider, that there are about 50 applications for one room !
The best way to gain an accommodation is to contact the previous intern in the law office of Aspelin & Bridgman. It's often possible to adopt the apartment of this intern. Therefore ring up in the law office about two month before you start your internship.
Good luck !

Apartments
- Post Street Apartments
big apartment house in the city center. Most of the interns are living there. It's necessary to make an early reservation from Europe. Reservations up to the manager himself are hard to place. He's nearly inaccessible and basically he doesn't answer any letters. But don't give up, try to reach him by phone. The other possibility is to ask an actual intern to place your reservation. For that, call the law office.
