Isis- I'm think I want to get some experience in Big Law but not stay in it to long. I have so many different areas of law that attracts me that I think I will end up trying to pursue public office. The opportunity to promote change and inspire other minority guys is what really motivates me to pursue law. I know all to well about how black men fall into the system because they aren't aware of all the options that they have. I have a uncle who has recently been arrested for the death of his own baby even though the child was with its mother who lived 2 hours away. Crazyness...I'm not sure if criminal defense if right for me but legalized I feel you about the outreach/awareness programs.Its nice to meet you all. Where is everybody applying to for law school?
Hello everyone!I'm a newbie in a sense that this is my first official posting. I am currently a 1L at Vermont Law School (I know ya'll like, Vermont? Yea me too lol) I went to Spelman and although I was studying along the lines of health science/public health, I always had a desire to attend law school. My law interests are corporate, public interest, international, and health law. I know I'm all over the place! But I feel like I want to definitely focus my time, attention, and resources to utilizing my law degree to help minorities and marginalized individuals. That is my ultimate goal b/c i do not know what opportunities may be thrown my way in the next coming years, and I am definitely making that an integral part of my life, whether its pro bono in a law firm, working at a non-profit, or offering free legal services on my own twice a month to those classes of people. I was always checkin the boards last yr as I was applying to law achool. I never posted anything b/c i found that most of my questions were answered by doing a quick search. I guess I will be actually part-take in discussions on these boards now since I feel like the sense of community is returning. And for all those who are applying to law school this cycle, I want to offer my words of encouragement and best of luck! And for the record, law school aint bad at all! Its definitely doable once you get a firm foundation in ur doctrinal courses.
