what about cyber law? Or is there such a thing ???

Only on Star Trek.

I take it that means "no".  Sorry that I am not as informed as you are.

If you think I'm informed about anything, you're really off.

It will be interesting to see what everyone end up doing after LS. May be things change a lot by then!!!
I am inetersted in immigration law as an immigrant myself. Patent law for my science background. Abused women(law), if there is such a thing, for all what my mom has gone through.
As you can see, I had a lot going on in my life :)

feminist, non-profit, education, child-advocacy

(Interning with our Commonwealth's Attorney right now, don't think I have the stomach for criminal)

I have been a paralegal for 13 years in family law, plaintiff's personal injury, business litigation, construction, surety and insurance defense.  Most of my experience has been in family law. I want to specialize in family as I will be able open my own firm sooner. It is also less document-intensive that other areas. (I am burned out on large document productions!) Besides, family law is never dull...   :o

I also wouldn't mind doing some pro bono work in animal law.
Namaste,
SLY
