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...

May 16th, 2010The past week has been amazing! I’ve been sleeping in, running errands, shopping, working out, reading good books and going out with friends.  I got the chance to do all the things I haven’t had the time to do all year!  Now, tomorrow I start my internship at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.  I’m very excited and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all. I’ll have one week to get acclimated to workin...

May 6th, 2010Well, it is official; I will never again be a 1L!! Tuesday morning at 11 am I finished my last final.  Afterwards our whole class headed over to The Detroiter (a bar within walking distance from school) to celebrate! The St. Thomas Moore Society (STMS) co-sponsored the event and Mike Staude the incoming 2L secretary and President of the STMS was able to get us a ton of gifts to give away! We had a raffle pretty much every five m...

April 27th, 2010I am officially no longer a Property student! I have completely finished 3 law school classes! It’s hard to believe that exactly one week from today I will be done with my first year! My property exam this morning was three hours and I cannot believe how fast time flew by.  I’m really glad to be taking a class this summer.  I’ve gotten so used to being at school and doing the whole “law school thing” that I could no...

April 26th, 2010The End is near! It’s Monday morning, and after an exhausting weekend of studying, I am at school ready to study Property all morning, afternoon, and night. My Property final is tomorrow morning! This is the only exam that we are not allowed to use an outline on, so there is a little more anxiety than there will be for the rest of them. Up to this point, I’ve predominantly been studying alone.  Right now, I am waiting for tw...

April 21st, 2010Finals start in 6 days! That might seem like I still have some time, but in my eyes I feel as though 6 days is nothing! Today is officially the last day of classes.  Never again will I sit in a regular class as a 1L; and, I must admit, that feels very good. Today is also the last SBA meeting of the academic year.  The new E-board and class officials are being welcomed and the old ones are saying adios. Every other free ...

April 16th, 2010Well, elections are finally over. Unfortunately, my running mate did not win, but I am excited to work with the newly elected VP Faiza Mohktar!  Next week we have a last meeting for the current board and the new board will be introduced for next year.  One thing I am excited about in the fall is meeting the incoming 1Ls and find out who will be on the new 1L board! This weekend is crazy busy from morning until night! Fi...
