For those of you who are law student wanna-bes who read this, a word to the wise: I have been pretty swamped with work lately. My trial level brief took over twelve hours to write, and I still think it sucks. Someday, I'm sure, it'll be a breeze to write a brief, but not right now. I spent Sunday catching up on Contracts, and used a day off on Monday to write my paper. It took so long, I missed both Civ Pro and Contracts. Too bad, too. Professor Contracts handed back the mid-terms. I got a check, which apparently is OK. I did get to talk to the Prof after class, and I determined that while I was on the right track, she didn't like the explanation. C'est la vie. But it's good to know I'm learning something. And that, despite being behind, I'm not clueless. Always good to know.
With the trial brief done, I can relax a bit. We did practice orals in class tonight, and I wound up going first. Based upon my classmates comments, I did pretty well. The real thing is at the end of April, and we drew names to find out who we were paired with. Originally, I drew Erin, but had to back out when the instructor said our trial would begin at 5:30, which is a pretty impossible time for me to make. So I switched with Molly (who apparently wanted to go during the week), and lo and behold, the only two guys in the class wind up facing each other. Should be interesting. I finally have gotten, in recent days, a chance to actually talk to Chad, and he seems like a really good guy. I'm actually looking forward to it.
