1 Year Since Committing to Law School

Hello from Zoom School of Law!

Time really does fly.

One year ago today I committed to law school.

Since then, it has been a challenging, but impactful, time in my life.

I remain incredibly grateful for this opportunity, as I understand that access to a legal education is a privilege.

I am inspired to utilize this privilege for good — so one day I can be there for others during an important time in their lives and help them navigate the often intimidating legal system.

I digress…

It is crazy to think how much has happened since starting law school this past August.

I’ve taken legal courses: Adjudicative Criminal Procedure, Civil Procedure, Contracts, Criminal Law, Legal Research and Writing, Property, and Torts.

I wrote 3 legal memoranda and completed 1 oral argument.

I’ve joined a few activities on campus: Women’s Law Association and the Student Ambassador Program.

I’ve met some wonderful people (shoutout to my study group).

But it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows.

Adjusting to online law school was a STEEP learning curve.

It was undeniably tricky to balance the demands of law school with taking time for myself and my loved ones.

While I’ve become ~slightly~ better at this as of late, I’ll never forget how challenging it was at first.

Regardless, I can confidently say I made the right decision to stick with it and give it my best shot.

One phrase I’ve been repeating this past year is: “You’re doing your best, and that’s all you can do.”

Moving forward, I am excited for my legal internship this Summer and I hope to gain more hands-on legal experience during my 2L and 3L years.

With that, the countdown to finals begin…

Wish me luck!
