Even though I did not enjoy ConLaw I this past semester, I’m taking ConLaw II because my Moot Court competition topic is constitutional law-based and ConLaw II is also a recommended course for the Bar. Hopefully it is nothing like ConLaw I. Evidence is also a recommended Bar course.Appellate Advocacy is required for all Moot Court team members. Yay…
But, the class I’m most excited for is actually my corporations tax class. I took Federal Income Tax last semester and the same professor is teaching the Corporations class this Fall. She is amazing. I can’t believe I’m excited about taking such a dry-sounding class and I know it’s supposed to be extremely difficult, but I’m looking forward to seeing how my professor makes the topic interesting and approachable.I think that I’m going to be pursuing some type of business-related law career whether it be tax, contracts, transactional, or litigation. Or I might just try to join the FBI. You never know.
The last class I’m considering is Financial Basics. Pros: it’s only a 2-unit class, is pass/fail, my same awesome tax professor is teaching, and I do want to get a solid foundation in business since my background is in the humanities. Cons: it would be my only class on Friday thus ruining a semester’s worth of 3-day weekends, and it is an extra load that I really probably won’t need with everything else that’ll be going on this Fall. On-campus interviews, Moot Court practices and competitions, job applications, class, wedding planning, a bit of traveling and life. We’ll see.In the meantime, Dallas is still hot, I get back to my townhouse drenched in sweat from walking literally 3 blocks from where the bus drops me off. And I am going home to San Francisco tomorrow evening for a friend’s bridal shower this weekend! Can’t wait to smush my kitty Cleo’s fuzzy face in.
