Bar Prep with a Family

Studying with a toddler has been a bit of a challenge. Most people have the opportunity to do homework in the early evenings or on weekends. In fact, I even had that opportunity during my first year, while pregnant. But now, early evenings at our house are dedicated to dinner with the family, bath time, bedtime routine, and extra snuggles. Weekends are usually out as well because it is the only time we have to spend together as a family. That leaves late evenings to do homework. My son usually goes to sleep around 8pm these days. Usually. As he…

October Mantra: I will reap my harvest gracefully without diminishing my accomplishments or work. October is harvest time.  It is a time to reap the benefits of seeds sown long ago.  But are you basking in the bounty?  We’ve all said it on the heels of a compliment following a major success.  “Oh, that was nothing.”  But you know what?  Yes, it was something and in many instances it was a whole lot of something.  Don’t get me wrong, grace and humility are important; however, we need to stop diminishing our accomplishments and learn to shine in our successes.

Relevancy of Linguistics: Power From Categories

INTRODUCTION At its core, feminism is equality for women. There are different forms of feminism each uniquely named and categorized by how a person defines equality and the route a person utilizes to achieve equality. These names and categories quickly identify a person’s beliefs as it relates to women’s rights. Ultimately, recognizing common ground and subtle differences enables groups to form and work towards achieving a unified purpose--whether that purpose is short term or long term. This article discusses the power of linguistics, the likelihood that you are a feminist, and why different categories of feminism matter—especially to lady lawyers.…

The Fear of the Unknown

I started taking my son to an early learning center when he was three months old so that I continue going to law school. He has attended that same school since and is now two and a half.

I knew that I was doing something that would benefit my family in the long run. I also knew that I was…

Every year, there are certain annual…

My Shema [A Poem for DACA & A Promise to Defend]

My Shema-Call to Prayer   When the neo-Nazis came for my city, I looked out And saw people passing out yarmulkes I cried tears of happiness, relief,  as I gripped my Star of David Given to me by my Episcopalian father, a sign of Tolerances over differences My ancestors fled Europe because their own homes Didn’t want them They wanted something better A job where they could work without ridicule, harassment or persecution. Sound familiar?   We defend the right to move The right to avoid death The liberty to be you Whatever that means Wherever that is When Tuesday…

The Tech Revolution Is Changing The Legal Field, And We Need To Respond In Kind

The technology revolution of the last half a century certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed. Everyday life is notably different for everyone. Big data and the IoT (internet of things) have created an interconnected network of devices that puts just about everything we need right at our fingertips. No one under the age of 60 has managed to escape the changes the tech revolution has spurned, including JDs.
