Bar Classes, Clinics, Electives, & More

Law school is an interesting experience, to say the least. While in law school, it feels as though time is moving at a glacial pace, but before you know it, the time has flown by, and you are closer to the finish line than you realized. With this being said, class selection is crucial because there are a plethora of classes to take in only a short amount of time. Three years seems like a long time until you realize that it is not nearly enough time to take all of the classes you are interested in and that are…

Minding the Business that Pays You

One of the most difficult parts of law school thus far has been fighting the urge to get swept up in the all-consuming comparison trap. "Comparison is the thief of joy” is all too real when it comes to law school even though it is almost human nature to compare yourself with others. Comparison is something that most people utilize because it seems to serve as a way of measuring our success and achievement against someone who we deem to be in similar standing to us. The hard part about comparing yourself to others is that we live in a…

The Best Law Schools In The Eastern US

Not too long ago, I wrote about the best law schools in the western United States. I felt like it provided some great info for my readers, so here is the follow up to that article. _ The Eastern United States is renowned for Ivy League universities, so it’s no surprise that 7 of the top 8 law schools are located east of the Mississippi. The schools listed below, according to the U.S. News Rankings, are the 8 best law schools in the eastern half of the country.   1. Yale Law School (U.S. Ranking: 1) New Haven, CT Yale…

Selfie with no Filter: the 1L Life - Academic Advice

Whew. It's over! Finals ended over two weeks ago and I still have days when I'm still not sure that I completely feel it yet. Sometimes I think I do, then (like the other day) I'm driving to meet friends for lunch, see someone with a backpack crossing the street, and automatically think "sh*t I've gotta get back to studying!" Though the feeling is still sinking in, I've received grades and gotten a chance to reflect on what I would do differently. Since I can't go back, my hope is to shed some light for future students. I did a good bit…

Innovative Law Schools: Aspirational or Unattainable?

UPDATE: I graduated from law school on May 11, 2018, so I am now Ms. Innovative Psychic, J.D.! I cannot believe that three years of the Socratic method, curved grades, and outlines are finally behind me. I still remember my first day of law school. As commonly experienced by many beginning law students, but rarely uttered, my main concern at the time was whether I should wear a suit to my first class or jeans. Over the years, I went from dreading cold calling to wishing that the professor would call on me so that I could be “off the…

15 Top Legal Defenses to Criminal Charges: Tips for New Lawyers

There are many ways to fight criminal charges and win. Here are some of the most successful legal defenses we use at Chudnovsky Law when defending our clients. The defenses are presented from the perspective of a crime charged under California law, but the same defenses apply in most states.   1) Mistaken Identity Incorrect witness identification is a major source for incorrect accusations. This can happen if a person’s description is similar to a criminal perpetrator or if a witness assumes someone committed a crime due to circumstances or they are trying to cover for a crime they committed. 2) Accident Most California…

I am still like you, just a little different

There are times in every person's life that can leave them feeling so different than everyone around them that they don't quite fit in. This is perhaps the one thing that we all have in common - we have all experienced this isolation on some level. Law school has left me feeling that on numerous occasions, but most certainly during my 4L year and second pregnancy. I have been thinking a lot lately about how law school can make you feel isolated from your pre-law school circle of friends, and your family. And, unique to my own situation, pregnancy can…
