[Ed. comment: Over the course of the summer, Ms. JD will be featuring updates from a blogger's work with the Legal Aid Board of South Africa in Durban. This is the first post in a series of posts that will track this work.]
So Susan and I leave for South Africa tomorrow. I will be working at the Legal Aid Board of South Africa in Durban with the Washington University in Saint Louis program. There is a lot of excitement and anxiety going on. I'm finding that I have the combined nerves of going to another country for three months and having my first legal job. I'm not really sure what kind of work I will be doing, but I am excited to find out. The WashU students are already over there so it will be nice to have people to orient us so we are not completely on our own. We'll see what adventure awaits.
