Livin' It Up Law School Style

The First Year, They Scare You To Death;
The Second Year, They Work You To Death;
The Third Year, They Bore You To Death.

Glimpses into the oh-so-exciting life of a 3rd year student at LSU Law School

Very Busy Day, But Probably Not Very Exciting

Today is going to be very busy, and probably somewhat less than very exciting. The fun part is going to be lunch. I'm meeting my very nice co-workers for lunch at Ninfa's, which is supposed to be a really really good Mexican restaurant. I haven't been there yet. I'm pretty excited and all. I start work on Monday, and I intend to put in as many hours as is humanly possible and do the best work I can. I not only want to do that because I'm somewhat OCD and really enjoy working and working and working, but also because I really like these people and want to make a good impression.

The less than fun part is that I'm picking up my Legal Professions take-home exam, which is due 24 hours after I pick it up. Legal Professions is the lawyer ethics class. The more I've read in the casebook, the more I wonder about my fellows who also chose this as a profession. Like the guy who microwaved an opposing party's cat during a deposition. Or the guys who launder money for their clients. Or the ones who embezzle funds. Or the ones who intimidate witnesses. I suppose every profession has its share of @$$holes, but the unethical lawyers seem best known. I mean, how many jokes come to mind when I say "legal ethics"? And most of y'all probably haven't read many real life cases of bad bad bad lawyers - lawyers just have that reputation!

Laissez les "o.k." temps rouler!

I think of the Corleone family lawyer in the Godfather series (played by Robert Duvall) sometimes when I think of lawyers.
