My First Grade is In…..

*insert drumroll*

A –

YAY, Bitches!
Sure it was my 2 credit class and sure it was Ethics which is basically learning what to say when asked what one *should* do and sure most people don’t really do what’s ethical… but so what? My GPA is creepin up!

That was a welcome surprise. I have two more grades that will need to post: Family Law and Evidence. Family Law will probably post soon. Evidence I’m not so sure about. I’ve been giving a lot of thought lately to what i want to do after graduation. Although the $130,000 starting salary sounds WONDERFUL, i really don’t want to follow that path. I want to do something I’m interested in and something that i feel will make a difference. Me sorting through paperwork at some huge law firm isn’t my idea of satifying. I’m toying with the idea of pursuing a career as a public defender or perhaps a prosecutor. I had an interesting convo with a guy who prosecutes children. Sounds fucked up, right? I was all ready to be pissed at him, but he was talking about how he has the leeway to decide the types of punishment and how he pushes for rehabilitation for youth. If i had an opportunity to do something like that where i had that much autonomy it might not be so bad.

In the fall I will be taking Administrative Law, Sales and Secured Transactions, and Criminal Trial Advocacy. The last court is all about learning how to try a case. I’m hoping to kill two birds with one stone on that one: 1) See if I really want to be a trial lawyer and 2) Work on speaking up and being more confident. Those three classes equal 9 credit hours and i’ll also have office hours for the Admin Law Review. I’m also going to be helping to edit the publication and hopefully be interviewing and trying to do something law related for next summer. Ideally I’d like to quit my current job and start working as a law clerk in the Spring. We’ll see where that goes.
