One of my professors is a firm believe that there is no such thing as “the law.” The rationale is that there is no set law—it is ever-changing. What was once the law or majority opinion can be overruled and the minority opinion may become the new law.

Yay for my last year of school! This year comes with usual nerves about beginning a new semester but now it is also about finishing my last year, winning mock trial competitions, passing the bar and getting a J-O-B. While I am anxious about all that is to come, as anything comes to an end there is also a time for reflection. So, here are a few things to consider as you embark on the law school admissions process.
When I began the process of applying to law school one of the most important considerations was service—customer service—with a background in the service industry, bad service is a deal breaker for me. I can honestly say that from my first interaction with the admissions staff I have had amazing service from the faculty, staff and administration.

I’m officially signing off. It is time to go into the deep, dark, hole where sweatshirts, yoga pants, tennis shoes, and hats live.
This year has been crazy-busy but also exciting and rewarding. I worked, competed in a regional and national mock trial competition, studied, laughed, cried, screamed and experienced any other emotion you can think of.

So, there is s song that has inspired this week’s post. Hopefully, if you know it you won’t judge me for using it– I really only know two or three lines. The reason it has been inspiring is because, as the song says we “started from the bottom now we’re here.”

I did not think much about the criminal world when I applied to law school. I knew why I was coming and it had nothing to do with the criminal realm (unless it was white collar). I had no desire to represent or defend alleged criminals.

Last night, Americans marked the end of football season with the
BeyonceBowl Superbowl and now TU is gearing up for competition season.
Last week, I competed in the Rocky Mountain Black Law Students Association Regional Mock Trial Competition in Dallas, TX. I must admit that I had no idea what to expect and as the trip got closer my nerves kicked in. I’d been confident up until the week of when I could not help but think there was something that I was forgetting—that I’d missed some crucial piece of evidence in the fact pattern.

For those of you considering law school that like linear things, black/white, yes/no, up/down, get it all out of your head now. In your 1L year you will learn that the answer to everything is “it depends,” in practice this is also true.

I cannot believe how quickly the time is passing! We are now in our 9th week of school; there are some serious pros and cons to this.
Pro, that much closer to winter break! Last, time we chatted I told you that I still found time to sleep. I am sad to report that sleep has been escaping me lately.

Somehow, I made it. The first year of law school can be terrifying at times. It’s sort of like boot camp for those of that are not inclined to wake up at 5AM and run mile after mile while someone screams at us. But don’t be fooled, I saw 5AM more times than I care to count. Sometimes it was because I went to bed early and woke up early to read. Somtimes, it was because I went to bed late and still woke up early. Other times, I stayed up frantically attempting to make my brain retain all the information I was reading.
