5 Things to Know About Practicing Real Estate Law

Real estate law has become a popular specialty, thanks to the growth of real estate investments and house flips made attractive by the media. There are abundant rules, guidelines, and paperwork that go with transferring expensive properties from one person or company to another, and most realtors and buyers rely on experienced attorneys, rather than risking errors. Mistakes in legalities can get landlords, investors, buyers/sellers, realtors, brokers, and others in trouble. If you started out in a different specialty, such as corporate or environmental law, switching to real estate law can be simple. It’s a great complement to many other…

Choosing a Law Specialization: Passion Trumps Pay

When I was in law school, I remember being given very ill-advised advice from friends and family: choose the highest-paying field of law. Sure, the money is good, but where's the passion? I couldn't imagine practicing law and being in a field I chose just for the money. I'm fueled by passion. I want to help people. I was drawn towards birth injuries. Maybe I have sympathy for mothers that go through nine months of pregnancy, dream big for their children and then are hit with birth injuries that cause their hearts to sink. Mothers can also be the ones…

Finding the Line: A Crash Course in Law School Boundaries

Reflecting on my law school years always fills me with a solid mixture of nostalgia and terror. I am one of those weirdos who really loved law school, but that “ish” was hard, particularly the first year. Everything was brand new, and I, like many others, went through a lot of personal growth. This required redefining and resetting my own boundaries with the people who were in my life before law school as well as learning to navigate new boundaries with my law school peers, professors, and administrators. This was a challenging balancing act, which I handled more gracefully at…

Finals with a Newborn

I took a final exam on Tuesday - the only regularly scheduled exam I was able to make. My baby was just 11 days old. This was honestly the hardest exam I have ever had to take (and not in terms of content). Usually when I take an exam, the time flies by, but this time it was the longest three hours of my life. Not only was I away from my baby for the longest amount of time since his birth, but I also was fighting sleep (in a freezing cold room!). I'm going to be honest, my desire to…

Ms.J.D. Interviews Lawyer-Turned-Business Owner Courtney Anderson

There is a long-standing view that it is difficult for lawyers to turn off their legal training and become entrepreneurs.  Though the two are not mutually exclusive, the argument is that lawyers think from an analytical view that makes them risk-adverse takers unlike the entrepreneur who knows that in business you must take risk.  Whether or not this is the rule is hard to say, but if it is then there is always an exception.  Take for instance, Courtney Anderson, co-owner of Vibe Ride, an indoor cycling studio in Atlanta.  Courtney was a business major in college, attended Harvard Law…
