T minus three days and counting…and then I am finished with my law review comment!
Today is one of my notoriously busy Thursdays. After today, I am prepared to spend the rest of my weekend writing about organ donation. And then hopefully never thinking about organ donation again!
Today in trial practice, we have a review day. (At first I was all excited because I figured “review” meant “nothing to prepare for class…” but apparently that’s not the case.) Prof. Krisciunas has us focusing on making a good first impression to the jury, and setting a proper stage for the rest of our case. We are thinking about that today by writing the first 45-60 seconds of an opening statement, and selecting our first three questions to ask the jury on voir dire. Should be interesting to see what everyone comes up with as their best minute’s worth of material!
It’s going to be a long day at school (what else is new?), but I’m hoping the sunshine outside is a good sign!
