Luck and the LSAT

Previously, I've written about the role that chance plays in the composition of each LSAT. The basis of that idea is that certain LSATs feature some concepts more than others, and if you get an LSAT that favors your skill set, you benefit. This isn't to say that you don't control your LSAT fate, because you do. You have the opportunity to prepare for each of the question types and concepts you see on each LSAT, and to closely examine the style and wording they use in constructing the test. Properly preparing for the LSAT is critical to producing your…

2015 Public Interest Scholarship: Destroying Injustice, One Hope at a Time

In his 2012 acceptance speech, President Barack Obama said, “I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.” In a public interest context, being stronger together means that as individuals we take action to ensure that every person, despite his or her socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, race, or ethnicity, is not robbed of experiencing hope. For my public interest pursuits, being stronger together means holding a…

Teachers Make Good Law Students:  Flexibility to Get Going

“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”  - Mary Ritter Beard  Law school students spend hours studying the black letter law and learning the minute details of rules and procedures.  Although the rules of the court can be rigid, your life in the legal profession could benefit from a little flexibility and organization.  Your time in law school doesn’t have to be just reading casebooks and writing briefs.  A study abroad experience can be a way to spice things up a bit.  I had…

Why I Talk About My Kids in Class

I’m delighted that our new Ms. JD chapter at UC Hastings will be co-hosting Ms. JD's Seventh Annual Conference on Women in Law, with its emphasis on creating communities of support for law students and young lawyers. One of the recurring themes of such gatherings is supporting efforts to combine a meaningful career with family responsibilities (my colleague Joan Williams, who will deliver welcoming remarks at the conference, uses this term to refer to caregiver responsibilities that both men and women may have for young children, aging parents, or other loved ones). As Joan and others have so persuasively argued,…

Five Reasons to Schedule Your Whole Day

Try starting your morning by reviewing your to-do list, weeding down, and writing a roadmap for your whole day. Here are five reasons to give this a try: Increased focus.  Our days are full of temptation to jump from one project to another, tackling what pops up in front of us.  If you are scheduled to check your email from 9-9:20 a.m., dismissing a 9:07 a.m. distraction is easier.  Focusing is also easier when you are only required to attend to one thing for a limited period of time. Better time allocation.  Scheduling provides the opportunity to allocate time to…

Litigating Mommy: If I Knew Then What I Know Now…

I often find that when I hit various milestones, whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or holiday, I can't help but look back to milestones past. Call me nostalgic (I most definitely am), but every year on New Year's Eve, I try to remember the details of my various New Year's Eve celebrations dating all the way back to high school, which was far too many years ago for me to admit. It's almost like I pride myself on my ability to remember even the mundane details, like the fact that on New Year’s Eve my sophomore year of high school,…
