Keeping Busy, and Keeping it Brief

Last week was crazy busy, which is why there weren’t any posts. I was in court 3 days in a row, (spoke two days!) and observed autopsies on Friday. I also wrote two fairly long motions/appeals. This week, on the other hand, I’m assigned to the Juvenile Division, where we work with both Child Welfare…

Scare, Work, Bore…

Spring break is next week, and I’m caught up on my homework until then. ¬†Perhaps most importantly, my brief was due yesterday, so that’s no longer something I have to worry about! (More on that later…) There’s a saying among legal types (law school students, professors, practitioners … everyone who has taken or plans to…

Procrastination!

Classes

It’s the weekend, so as promised, I’ll talk a bit about each of my classes, and the law school paradigm in general. Disclaimer: This got really long. Apparently I have lots to talk about. tl;dr version: I like my law school classes, they’re not like other courses I’ve taken before. One thing that every potential…
