The Journey: Writing Tips

From the moment we learn to write our names as children to the moment we take the essay portion of the bar exam and begin writing memos for clients, writing is an omnipresent activity that follows us through life. For some, writing is a delightful hobby and for others it’s a dreaded chore but either way, writing is vital to succeeding in law school and beyond. I’ve always loved to write. I recently found an old diary of mine from when I was ten years old. I vented into its pages my frustrations of having to share a room with…

The Journey: Relocating for a New Job

I decided to devote this blog post to my recent move for work and to hopefully offer some encouragement and advice to others out there who are considering doing the same.

While New Year’s resolutions are a fun and traditional part of ringing in the New Year, many resolutions focus on outward appearances such as dieting, losing weight and getting in better shape.

The Journey: Blogging as a Practicing Attorney

In the vast world of law, blogging as a hobby can be your passport to explore a new field, a compass when all seems lost or a one-way ticket to a new career. I have benefited from blogging myself. Like many new lawyers, after graduating from law school several years ago I felt lost and unfulfilled. I began a career working for a non-profit legal services organization, but I still yearned for something more - something to be excited about and something to be proud of - something that was mine. I discovered that blogging was my something more. I’ve…
