To JD or not to JD?

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock… It is as undeniable as it is unfortunate.  Integral to the female experience is the biological clock. Not that every woman wants to bear children.  However, for women who do dream of one day having a family of their own, timing how far into your career to start a family means considering a multitude of factors including age and career level. Let us examine the predicament of women in law, specifically. The average tertiary educated woman now delays the starting of her family until her early 30s.  This begs an important question: For how…

Impostor Syndrome or Reasonable Doubt?

There’s been a lot of recent talk about Impostor Syndrome, or the inability to internalize your accomplishments, which leads to a strong belief that you’re not qualified for something- despite the fact that your educational and professional accomplishments clearly prove otherwise.  Impostor Syndrome leads you to think you’re not good enough to do something, like you don’t belong because you’re an impostor. Before you give yourself this diagnosis, consider that maybe what you’re feeling isn’t impostor syndrome at all.  Maybe it’s just reasonable doubt.  It’s perfectly normal to experience doubt when trying something new, especially as a new lawyer.  But…

Little Fix, Big Energy

For the past three days, I’ve had a little rectangular message drop down on my MacBook:  “Keyboard batteries low.” Each time it appeared, I thought about the need to change the batteries and then brushed it aside. After all, the keyboard was still connected. The batteries could not be that low.  Besides, I was in the middle of something. And the interruption of getting up….  Well, I didn’t need it right now. Finally this morning, I took the big step.  Got up and actually changed the batteries. It took a total of two minutes.  Done. Same way with a squeaky…

South Carolina Women Lawyers Association - March President’s Message

#Iwilltry, #InternationalWomensDay Sunday, March 8 is International Women's Day. Founded in the early 1900s to rally against injustices to women, International Women's Day focuses today on celebrating recent advances of women around the globe. March 8, as fate would have it, is also my birthday. I was named after my grandmother, Marguerite. On my 16th birthday, my grandmother gave me a ring that belonged to her mother. It was a simple gold band engraved with three words: I will try. As she handed me this gift, my grandmother said, Words to live by. And so, I have tried. I will…

It’s Been Years Since I’ve Posted - Things are Better!

My first and only post to Ms. JD was years ago, while I was still in law school.  (Previous post here: It's six years later - I finished law school, passed the bar exam, and began working as an attorney.  Nine months ago, I left the law firm where I was an associate and opened my own practice.  It has not always been easy, but my husband and I got through it together and we will be celebrating our 17th anniversary this fall.   I painted a pretty negative picture of my husband, which isn't fair.  Yes, he had moments where he…
