Having a family, working and attending law school.  One of my most challenging day-to-day responsibilities is making sure that I am being a good parent.  Parenting skills cannot be learned by reading a book.  The skills required to be a good parent are learned during the process of raising children.  This by far is the most challenging skills I've yet to learn.  When you have another person's life...

Someone asked me today how I manage all that I have to do.  This question is not something I focus on nor one I could easily answer.  An afterthought - it's just my life. In fact, if I begin thinking about my several responsibilities, tasks and etc., I would likely get discouraged from my goals and loose sight of what's most important to me.  This in large part is to be a role model for my son and help him to achieve his ...

Reviewing notes after each class and start outlining early. Part of the law school adjustment is learning what study method works best for you.  I found that reviewing notes after class for a few minutes helps me better understand the concepts.  More recently I found that I should focus on one class per study session.  This way, I am learning the material in manageable clusters and don’t get overwhelmed with all that I have to do....

Reflect constantly.  All things happen for a reason and nothing happens by chance.  I live my life with no regrets and am constantly working to become the person that God has predestined me to be.  This requires constant self-reflection. Through good times, great sacrifice and much tragedy I have come to enjoy each moment in life and have learned from life experiences.  Sometimes I calm myself fro...

Fun filled weekend with law books.  Most of my time is accounted for during the week, so the weekends are reserved for studying.  There is not much time really to do anything else.  But, sometimes you have to break with tradition.  Today I will be hitting the books mostly all day but will reserve some R&R and pamper myself a bit.  I will also find some enjoyment in sho...

Set aside family time. Friday is the best!  It’s a privilege to go straight home after work.  After a long week of work, and school I am exhausted.  Today is my only real down time.  Sometimes I wish I had more energy on Friday to get some homework done.  But, I don't.  So, I take advantage of being home and enjoy some family time.  The transition from "normal life" to that of a law student can affect your ent...

Make the most of your law school experience.  Most evening law students work during the day as well as have families and other obligations to tend to. This makes it a bit challenging to get the exposure and experience in the field before graduating.  Law school opens up a world of opportunity and  being an evening student should not stop you from getting practical experience early on.  When people see you work h...

Time management is a life skill that spills over into law school, exams, and eventually the practice.     Before starting law school I was a procrastinator -- not any more.  Law school has no place for people dragging their feet.   It's all about self discipline and good habits.  This academic environment has taught me a lot about myself.  One thing that remains constant is that although my efficiency and ...
