Our ambassador year is coming to a close, and this is my final blog entry for the semester. But that doesn’t mean that we are all gearing up for a summer off around here. Being in law school does not include a summer vacation. Even for the 3Ls, they have a summer’s worth of studying for the bar exam coming up. For me and other 2Ls, we have a chance to work for a law firm, or take classes, or complete an internship. These things often take more hours out of a day than regular school year class hours. So, although classes will be ending soon, the workload continues.

You may have heard this already, but it bears repeating. One of the most important goals of your legal education should be to improve your legal writing skills.
I came to law school feeling fairly confident in my writing abilities. I have always enjoyed writing and I had the benefit of learning from excellent writing professors and teachers throughout my education. I have even been told that I am a good writer. Ok, that was mostly from my mom. But when I started law school, I discovered that I was not as prepared as I thought I was.

Last Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the investiture of the newest U.S. District Court judge for the Northern District of Oklahoma. The official ‘investing’ of authority for Judge John Dowdell was a full house event – all three district courtrooms in the federal building were standing room only (I was one of the standers). The new judge was sworn in, and he promised to preserve, protect, and uphold the Constitution of the United States.
