Squaring up to the Matter
Morning. Got the Scissor Sisters
going (soundtrack to my life), tall glass of Recharge--what coul;d be wrong? Oh, yeah, work.
Within the past week you've witnessed something heretofore unseen at *Life As Is* as I have taken it by the horns. Which isn't very as is
now is it. Discussion has been focused exclusively on one topic--the law school curriculum (in anticipation of a fast-approaching presentation, on said topic, that Ethan and I will give on April 8th) (for those of you in Madison: at noon in the Law School Lubar Commons). I'm surprised at how many different directions there are to take the conversation in! It's been good.
I'd like to do a week-in-review post to pull out the major threads, but that'll wait for tomorrow. To borrow a phrase from my own story, set in print (here
) this past Sunday, let us for now square up
to the matter and look it directly in the eye. A question I haven't yet answered: What did you expect from law school, and what did you find when you got there? [Ethan, others, what say you?] Tough question to answer without (a) idealizing the experience, on the on hand, or, on the other (b) overlooking the positives. (positives, what positives?)
