Law School F-Up

Today kind of sucked. Mostly because the textbook market failed me. Supply/Demand curves, yo. I needed a ConLaw book for a class, specifically – the 5th edition. Since I don’t have a million dollars, I pay for my schooling (including books) with loans, and can’t purchase my texts with blood or tissue samples [my undergrad was secured by promising my first-born to the Baylor Line] – I am careful with my funds…

First Day Back!

Three semesters down, baby! It feels soooo good. I know it sounds crazy, but I really look forward to coming back to class. Law school is one of my happiest places. I’ve spoken to you about how hard classes are, and explained that my social life is nil, and joke about staying under the warm covers, eating bon-bons, and reading novels over the break, but the truth is – I…

The Socratic Method Nightmare: My First Day of Law School

Here’s the post I wanted to publish, but couldn’t bring myself to do so because it was a  wee bit snarky. After tonight’s panel – I felt it should see the light of day; this way, you know just what was running through my mind that Fall morning. Enter: Torts Class 1. Now after almost a week of orientation (“fundamentals”), and finding out that I don’t know a damn thing…

Wanderlust

This past weekend, I took an opportunity to run far from my notes, quizzes, and exam prep materials – three days before finals were set to begin. My best friend asked if I had a mental death wish. Truthfully, I snagged a great deal on airline tickets, and managed to fly from Dallas > Boston roundtrip for $22. I used a few of my airline points from previous flights with Southwest,…

Rolling Craps + Bright Lights

  This post is several weeks late. I wanted to update y’all, really – but I had this crazy notion that 2L year was going to be smooth sailing. Don’t ask me where the delusion came from, because I have no answers for you. Here’s what you need to know – law school is still incredible, and I love learning new concepts; but then, sometimes, law school will kick you…

Book Briefs

Let me be totally frank, I know that you feel case briefing sucks the big one. It’s time-consuming, frustrating to type or write out, and you wish you could be doing anything else. Right? Well, I hate to break it to ya, but briefing is a must. Anyone who says they don’t do it, but they still get by in class is *probably* lying. There’s just too much damn information in law texts for someone…

Vodka & Comfort Zones

Walking into a networking event – where you plan to know less than 2 people – is terrifying. As a law student, networking events include our future employers, partners, and colleagues – which means first impressions count. While clerking for a Probate Judge last Spring, he said to me ” Sarah, don’t ever be the attorney that thinks they know everything. Be the attorney that makes it your business to know what…

Law school (higher education, in general) racks up some incredible bills. I want to make a lucky student’s semester a bit easier, by providing a great backpack! If you win, then this item is one less thing to worry about buying!

Check It Out!

I purchased myself this Kuakko backpack style, in Navy. I luuuurve it. It’s professional enough for class, and last-minute networking events. Surprisingly, it holds quite an impressive number of law school accoutrements (not too unlike a *magical* bag of holding…)

All you’ve got to do is click the link below, and follow the instructions!

First Day Jitters

Orientation week (or, Fundamentals Week on our campus) is nearly over. If you were lucky, orientation lasted one day. However, many law schools cram 6 days of information into 2 days of real-time. Our campus demands a whopping 40 hours! It’s grueling, especially coming off of a relaxed summer. If you’re feeling utterly spent, don’t fret – you’re NOT alone! The first day of class is just a few days away. I’m sure you…

Advice from 2Ls

  I want to tell you all the secrets. Law school will create moments in your daily life where your soul is crushed. Everything may suck, and you’ll remember this advice (which you skimmed, but really should have read in great detail. Here’s the advice that counts, matters, and may quite possibly save you a load of heartache.   No one likes a know it all. Especially when you’re the type to rub…
