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...

April 29, 2011       This week has been long and exhausting but I found time to giggle some.       During finals time, I'm exhausted from keeping up with a full and busy semester.  This semester I anticipated a light exam schedule because that's the way that I planned it.  I have one take home final for my Conflicts of Lawscourse and a paper due for French Law. ...

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...

April 8th, 2011Good times –  So much going on around school, in my life, and with my son        My son is heading to NY…without me.  It took me some time to get used to the fact that he's getting older, and I have to learn no to be as protective over him.  Now is the time that I have to trust that I've been raising him right, and he will make the right decisions in or out of my presence.  T...

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...

*Grumble*Monday*Grumble*  I am not a Monday girl. My day started off with a trip to the post office at 9am to ship my Torts Examples and Explanations book that I sold on Amazon. Torts? Been there, done that.  After that, I had to be at school for 10am for a group meeting for a project we are doing based on the book “A Civil Action.” That took a whole 25 minutes…and then I had to wait around until class at noon. I took the time to go t...
