February 9th, 2010Well, I more or less survived the craziness that was my Monday. As a result of my trip to the dentist, I found out that I have a cavity (as a result of my mistaken understanding that chewing sugar-free gum was a harmless habit…), so I get to visit my friend the dentist again next Wednesday for a filling. Lucky me.   Today was an unusual day. We have ALTA conferences this week, where we each meet with our ALTA professors fo...

February 7th, 2010It’s Sunday night (Super Bowl Sunday…and I’m doing homework), and after some reflection of my day tomorrow, I’m already stressed out. My day starts with the dentist at 9am (and there are few things more unpleasant for me than a trip to the dentist) and then I will probably head to campus and find something to accomplish until my civpro class at noon. Then, from 2-3pm, I have the last of my computer research training and then cor...

February 6th, 2010Greetings from Panera!  It is a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and I am taking full advantage of it by sitting indoors with the blinds drawn (in order to reduce the glare on my computer screen). I’m hoping to spend a few minutes in the sunshine today (even though it’s about 30 some odd degrees out) because let’s face it, months without any sun just stinks. As pleased as I am with my choice to attend UDM Law, there are cer...

February 4h, 2010Already Thursday!  Yesterday was a pretty fun day of classes, especially core concepts where we were working on negotiations. Our hypothetical for the semester is that we are representing a large company that wants to buy a smaller plastic bag manufacturer. Today’s negotiations related to the fact that the plastic bag company was cited for several Occupational Safety and Health Association violations. As such, the company b...

February 1st, 2010Happy (?) Monday!  Last night’s reaction for most of the people in my ALTA section? “I can’t wait for the weekend!” Never a good sign on a Sunday night…  After finishing my brief yesterday, I was so tired that I had to really push myself to finish my reading for today. Needless to say, the laundry I planned to do, the work I wanted to get ahead on, the bookcase I wanted to build…it’s still sitting there, waiting.&nbs...

February 1st, 2010When people ask me whether I like law school, I generally reply “most days.” Today was not one of those days.  ALTA is one of those classes that you love to hate. It’s a pain in the you-know-what when you have assignments due and you have to spend your previously relaxing weekend time researching, organizing and writing for various assignments…but when it’s all said and done, you have so much to show for it that it al...

Hello from the practically abandoned law building.  Today is Friday. On Fridays most of the 2Ls and 3Ls don’t have class…as such, we’re already at a reduced capacity.  Then, when you consider that the two other day sections of 1Ls have their classes earlier, you basically end up with our section waiting around during our hour and a half break and then leaving to a practically empty parking lot (and we get to park in the main lot on Fr...

January 27th, 2010Halfway through the week!  This morning, despite the bitter cold, was so nice…I got to sleep in!  We just finished our core concepts class (and we even finished early!) where we discussed negotiation. We are talking about the different interests in negotiation, a bit about the ethical obligations involved and that sort of thing. Although some of it seems like common sense, the class really seems to be teaching useful...

January 26th, 2010It feels as though I never leave…  After my late day on campus yesterday, I have a just-as-late, but longer day today. Today, we had contracts at 9am, followed by ALTA from 11:30-1. Then we have a half hour break between ALTA and our civpro review session at 1:30. It is from this break that I write to you today. That schedule seems pretty reasonable, and in fact, this will be my schedule for the remaining Tuesdays this t...
