What's a business opportunity? That problem has troubled many people who have been trying to decide whether to purchase a current independent company, franchise, or business opportunity.  There is a similar relationship between market prospects, independent sales firms, and franchises.

Career and Employment Tips During Corona Virus Times

We can all agree that in today’s current situation, many are losing work and most expert economists are forecasting a recession. However, career experts still believe that it is ideal to continue applying and networking, as long as you come up with a dynamic approach to acknowledge that these are unforeseeable moments.

Everything Nobody Ever Told Me: Why If You’re Hysterical, It’s Historical

I had been having problems with my email lately. I dreaded calling technical support, since my experience in the past involved sitting for a long time on hold and listening to someone reading from a script instead of thinking creatively about my problem. However, since I could not fix the problem myself and I felt I had no other options, I called my internet service provider’s technical support line. True to form, after thirty minutes on the phone we had barely moved past the point where I had repeated my name and account number to four different people. Then, after…

Ms. JD’s 2020 Public Interest Scholarship

My first day at the University of Nebraska College of Law changed my life forever- I know that’s basic but it’s the truth. I was nervous, anxious, and excited for this new chapter of my life to commence. As I stepped into the auditorium filled with my colleagues, however, I quickly realized that I was the only Mexican American woman in my class. I knew that students of color were underrepresented in law school, but I never expected to feel so out of place in that moment.  I come from a background where attending college, let alone law school, was…

Ms. JD Public Interest Scholarship

Erika Paul Ms. JD ID: erikapaul   I come from a long line of strong women.

My own mother, in her 20s, raised my brothers and me after my father left us to traverse this crazy world without him. Most people would perceive these events as tragedies, but the women in my family used these difficult circumstances to…

Practice Pointers – Investing in Your Mental Health

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and I couldn’t let these 31 days go by without addressing mental health and the practice of law. So here I am anxiously asking myself what I want to say at 8:41 pm on Sunday, May 31. (Full credit goes to my generalized anxiety disorder for this latest installment of “Natasha psyched herself out and procrastinated yet again even though she knows she shouldn’t.”) It would be the understatement of the year to say that lawyers suffer from a mental health and substance abuse epidemic. ALM’s most recent Mental Health and Substance Abuse Survey…

Ms JD Public Interest Scholarship Application

              My name is Nicole D’Jovin Button and I am currently attending Duquesne University School of Law in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  My main goal after graduation is to secure a position in public interest and/or public service so that I can help provide legal support to a community of people who so desperately need it.   I chased my law school dream with a passion to fight incarceration, and along the lines found out that I also would like to help fight for women’s rights, disability rights, and fight for any other person who suffered an injustice in their life time.  I just feel like…
