September 5th, 2010What a beautiful weekend! We could not have asked for better weather for Labor Day weekend! I was so excited to feel that autumn chill in the air and I am even more excited about not having school on Monday. The next break after this isn’t until Thanksgiving so I’m gearing myself up for the long haul. My plans for today consist of going to the gym and homework, homework, homework. Of course, I slept in super late which felt a...

September 2nd, 2010I’ve officially put myself on a terrible schedule. Last night I was sleeping by 9:30 pm and was up at 4 am ready to start my day. I refused to get out of my bed until 5 then I wasted time on my computer, did some homework, then got ready for work. I got stuck in terrible traffic downtown today. I swear, if I didn’t know any better I would have thought I was in NYC. I was in standstill traffic and there was people walking every...

August 31st, 2010Well, I’m into the second week of classes and I feel as though I haven’t even had a second to breathe! I’m taking four classes this semester which doesn’t seem like a lot, but I’m also working 20 hours a week (the maximum we’re allowed to work while in school full time). The classes I’m taking this semester are: Real Estate Transactions, Environmental Law, Seminar in International Human Rights, and Criminal Procedure.  I am ...

August 23rd, 2010Tomorrow is the first day of class! Last week I was able to meet a group of new 1Ls as part of the new mentoring program. I wish they had this program last year when I started.  Oh well, at least it is implemented now. I don't have much to blog about today. I have just spent the day trying to start on some reading for my classes. I plan to blog more regularly again now that school is starting. I'm excited for the week to st...

August 16th, 2010MPRE So how did the MPRE go? Not at well as I had hoped.  It was so easy; it was hard…if that makes sense.  I will be so annoyed if I didn’t pass.  Yes, I am legitimately concerned that I didn’t pass!  Scores won’t be in for five weeks so for now I’m just going to forget about it. WCPO Internship This past Friday was my last day at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.  I was so sad to see my t...

August 3rd, 2010The MPRE is only three days away and I’m not sure if I’m prepared or not.  I've taken a few days off of work this week to study for it. I will be so happy when it is over. I will be sure to share my thoughts after it is done. Next week is my last week at the Wayne County prosecutor's office. I am sad to see my time there end but I am also excited for a new beginning this fall. In no time at all, classes will be starting.&nbs...

July 25th, 2010It's been so long since I've written. I had no idea just how busy I was going to be this summer. I have to say that although this summer has been busier than expected it has been amazing. I have learned so much at my internship at the WCPO.  By far, the best experience at the WCPO has been when I got to work on a murder trial. I was able to write motions, briefs, and all sorts of other things.  In addition, I worked close...

June 22nd, 2010Jack Of All Trades I’m learning that to be a lawyer you really have to be a jack of all trades.  For example, today I had to edit interrogation videos for a big case I’ve been assigned to for the past few weeks now.  Luckily, I had taken a video production class in undergrad which had introduced me to the software I needed to use for the editing.  A judge went through and ruled sentence by sentence what could stay i...

June 20th, 2010My internship at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has been amazing so far!  Every day I learn something new and exciting.  I just finished writing my first real life Motion in Limine and Brief in Support!  When I wrote a brief in school last semester we were given 8 weeks to finish it.  When I received the assignment and was told it was due in 2.5 days, I got very nervous! I finished on time and felt proud o...

May 23rd, 2010On Monday I started my internship at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. I’ve only been there three days but I’ve already done a variety of things.  Yesterday I went to court for preliminary exams which lasted most of the day followed by an intern orientation seminar. Yesterday was also my boyfriend’s birthday (Happy Birthday Jimmy!) so after work I spent the rest of the evening and night celebrating! Today was another busy d...
