Blogging has been spotty lately because there’s been a lot of contemplating, running around, and general law school student craziness. But, I have some things figured out now. First, I’m working for the San Francisco City Attorney on their Complex and Special Litigation team this summer.
Second, and more long term, I think I would really love to work for the City of San Francisco in some capacity as a lawyer. Either on the civil side of things which I will get a glimpse of this summer or on the criminal side in the district attorney’s officer or as a public defender. Having never experienced DA or PD work, I’m planning on trying to do one of the awesome clinics that UC Hastings offers, the Criminal Law Clinic, next year. Third, I’m really excited about the work I’m doing at the Attorney General’s. I get to see my first deposition in action next Wednesday.
Fourth, barre classes are kicking my ass. I anticipate the day that I pass the bar and become a full-fledged lawyer more and more each day.
And that is all this law student has to say. I have some to do some source pulls and BlueBook editing for a journal article.

Prudential is pretty cool. Fun fact: there are more Prudential employees in Japan than there are in the United States.I spent all yesterday doing orientation. Prudential has 20 or so legal interns for the summer and most of them are in Newark, New Jersey. I’m the only intern in Dallas so I sat in the giant conference room video conferencing with the rest of the intern class. There is the most amazing view from the 25th floor.
Dallas is so flat and filled with gorgeous skyscrapers. Makes my eyes feel funny sometimes since I’m so used to San Francisco’s hills.
It’s also pretty darn hot here. Like 100 degrees every single day. I leave for work looking fresh……and after a full day of work and 10 minutes outside waiting for Hyatt’s free shuttle service, I am limp and wilted.It’s always so nerve-wracking getting those first few assignments from my manager. She asked me to Shepardize some cases today and I literally and completely blanked on what the heck that meant. Serious nerves.
Oh well, everything’s a work in progress right?
