I wanted to fill everyone in on two days that I had recently at my new school. The first day was a Pre-Law day that the school hosted. Anyone who had applied to the school was invited to come and listen in on different talks, Q&A sessions, an actual law school class, mock court, etc. The school served us an amazing breakfast along with an amazing lunch complete with delicious desserts. There was even a break away session for parents to go into the chancellor's suite and have lunch with him and ask questions. After the activities were over, there was another break away session for students who had been admitted. They served us more desserts. It's like they want us to be chubby lawyers... lol. Anyway, for me, that was the best part of the day because I got to meet with some of my professors and get a real feel for the law school life. Everyone was kind and really cared about the students. Lastly, we toured the school. The law school has a fantastic moot court room! Since the court room is fully functional, once a month actual court proceedings are hosted there. So awesome! The day was fun and exciting, not to mention informative.
The next event at the school that I was invited to was an admitted students reception. This event was in the evening and I wasn't expecting the same spread as the Pre-Law day, however I was surprised! Cakes, cookies, brownies, pies, galore and a phenomenal dinner! Again, they must like chubby lawyers...The chancellor spoke again about the accomplishments of the law school and alumni. Approximately 25-30 alums spoke about their current positions. I was quite impressed. Some of these people are my age and are in high places! They live all over the country. For me this was a big deal since I have such an affinity for Seattle and intend to live there!. We also learned about an amazing opportunity for 2L and 3L students. The school has a study abroad program in London... LONDON! Needless to say, I'm going to do whatever it takes to make that happen. (Get ready for some amazing blog posts). The evening ended with another tour of the school which was great because I had the chance to speak with current students about the realities of being a law student. I also got tips about where to get cheap books. Super plus right there!. I went home with a full belly but most importantly a full heart! I trust that God has put me exactly where I need to be to in order to learn to be a top notch lawyer lady!
Also, a little tid-bit here that is not related to this post at all... I found an attorney who practices full time as an animal rights attorney near Seattle. I got his contact information and will be sending him an e-mail soon to pick his brain about his profession and maybe... just maybe... I can come and do an internship with him. Fingers crossed.
