Ms. Pre-JD: “Don’t Go to Law School!”

As an overenthusiastic pre-law student, I can be prone to mentioning that I want to go to law school. Every five seconds. When someone asks about my major, I tell them, but I quickly add, “and I want to go to law school, so it’s more for personal interest!” If anyone asks me about my courseload, I immediately inform them that the political science class is “to be more aware because I want to go to law school”, and that the reason I dropped that GPA-killing elective was because “I have to get into law school!” I don’t think I…

Let’s Be Real

My best friend Jess is a rockstar. So when I read an article in The New York Times a few months ago suggesting that women ought not to be themselves in a professional setting--at least not completely themselves--I knew I had to ask Jess if she agreed. Is that true? I wondered. Do you have to hide who you are to get ahead? Jess is no stranger to sticking out because of who she is. She is an environmental engineer, has worked as a technology consultant, and now is a senior product manager at a clean energy company.  In her undergraduate degree, she…

What Every Female Attorney Should Have in Her Wardrobe

Considering how busy your schedule is as an attorney, there are surely times when you face your closet, and then disappointment comes next. How many times did you open your closet and said, “I don’t have anything to wear,” to yourself? How many times have you stated that you need something “new” to wear? That means what you have is an inoperational wardrobe and seriously, you need to change that. But how will you know which ones to replace and what items you should keep? Like a simple or basic white tee, or your blue pair of jeans, or how…

What You Need to Know About the Legal Matters of DUI

Driving under the influence is a common offense, and some of its statistics are alarming. Studies have shown that around two in three people will find themselves in a drunk driving accident in their lifetime. In 2014, a daily average of 27 people died due to drunk driving crashes. In the same year, over 1.1 million individuals got arrested in the United States for driving under the influence, and about a third of that number are repeat offenders. While we can all agree that it’s best to avoid getting behind the wheels after having a drink or two, we all…

Efficient Versus Effective

Today, let’s dive into a short thought that practices what it preaches! As you harness the energy of heading into a new year, try filtering the way you spend your time by thinking about whether you are being effective, or just efficient. We all love productivity tips and learning how to work better and faster, but remember – the most efficiently-done task should still be worth doing, should make a difference, should be something that needs to get done, should further a goal that you set for yourself.  A longer day in the office doesn’t make sense if that extra time doesn’t need…

Leadership 101 For Women Lawyers

We all are -- or we should be – thinking a lot about leadership these days. This is an important week as we witness the peaceful transfer of power from one national leader to another here in the United States of America. It is what distinguishes our democracy, and it should not be missed, even if your candidate is not being sworn in. I will be doing my part for the inauguration by participating in a leadership program that, every four years, brings college students to DC to witness the inauguration and hear from leaders in a variety of career…

Talk Is Cheap… Or Is It? How Facebook Content Can Lead to Legal Action

Since its advent in early 2004, Facebook has become as familiar and as pervasive as the air we breathe – to such an extent that it’s been a ground for public concern for quite a while now, and not just because of self-evident issues like cyber-bullying. Social media, and Facebook, in particular, wield amounts of personal data beyond imagination (and leverage it for their commercial interests, too). The majority of users have no clue as to how far it spreads, and whatever one chooses to share with ‘friends of friends’ can go a long way – and much farther than…
