I know that this might sound insane, but I can't wait to get started this fall. What areas of law do you guys want to practice?

Prosecution or defense? Just curious.

Swampfox- helpful comments.  My wife and I visited, and those apartments seemed very nice.


As far as what I hope to practice, I'm trying to go in with an open mind... I would like to get a job with a decent-sized firm within the city, and eventually perhaps do corporate litigation.  However, I'm going to see where things lead me and see what really interests me.

Just out of curiosity, what makes you want to be a criminal attorney if you don't know what side you want to be on?  I'm not knocking that decision either way... just curious.  After all, one side of the fence, you are trying to defend people, and the other side, you are trying to fry (figuratively speaking) those same people.  Does criminal law, in general, just interest you?

TopCat, I remember now one characteristic about the Village that made it an especially interesting place to live.  Toyota used to rent out several of the apartments for people from Japan staying there temporarily.  They made for excellent neighbors, and often someone would stop by to politely ask (in halting English) for basic assistance on something like setting up the cable TV or where to buy groceries.

That sounds like a very interesting experience that could lead to many stories... I think I am most excited about having a tennis court a rock throw away.  ;)

I'm just interested in criminal law in general. I really see both sides as a type of defense; it's just that one side defends the accuser while another defends the victim.
