Hope everyone enjoyed the Superbowl. So the spring semester is fully underway. The fall of 1L year was certainly challenging, there was a lot to get used to but this second semester has definitely seen the workload increase. If you break down the semester based on which credits actually count toward which grades the spring semester accounts for 21 of the 30 credits for 1L year. (This is largely on account of the fact that I have two year-long courses worth 6 and 5 credits respectively.) Suffice to say it’s been a busy one. The memos in Legal Skills are longer and Property is probably the most substantively dense course I’ve taken so far.
All and all, I’m still enjoying it and I’m frantically trying to get things in line to find some kind of legal employment over the summer. It’s not all work though, Barrister’s Ball is quickly coming up and there’s even a law school trip to the Connecticut Supreme Court. I’ll be sure to post more on summer employment opportunities as they arise. Oh, and I’ve also recently gotten a job as a Bloomberg Product Advocate at the law school. I’m really looking forward to starting and I’m excited to be getting a little more in-depth on the practical end with one of the legal services out there.
