February 6th, 2010Greetings from Panera!  It is a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and I am taking full advantage of it by sitting indoors with the blinds drawn (in order to reduce the glare on my computer screen). I’m hoping to spend a few minutes in the sunshine today (even though it’s about 30 some odd degrees out) because let’s face it, months without any sun just stinks. As pleased as I am with my choice to attend UDM Law, there are cer...

February 4h, 2010Already Thursday!  Yesterday was a pretty fun day of classes, especially core concepts where we were working on negotiations. Our hypothetical for the semester is that we are representing a large company that wants to buy a smaller plastic bag manufacturer. Today’s negotiations related to the fact that the plastic bag company was cited for several Occupational Safety and Health Association violations. As such, the company b...

May 13th, 2011Good to get my head above water, even for a spell.          Today I finished my third year of law school!  If I was a full-time student, I would be graduating today, but I have no regrets attending part-time.  I am happy to participate in the celebration of many of my fellow law students and friends come to the end of this law school journey.      &nbs...

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...
