Why I Don’t Practice Law (collection of tweets)

During my CLE this year, I decided to keep track of the reasons that I don’t practice law on Twitter. I hope you enjoy. Comment any favorites, or make any contributions. because after nearly 15 hrs of cle in the last 32 hrs i am contemplating poking sharp objects into my eyeballs because mediation is for wussies because my idea of trial prep is 45 minutes of perry mason followed by 30 minutes of matlock because they call me ‘the yapper’ and the whole “brief” thing never worked to well for me because i happen to like “the blog things” because being disciplined by the board actually sounds intriguing because i cannot call myself a ‘minister of justice’ without winking and shooting my air gun Hide Conversation because I say “compliance” with the same disdain as other “c” words because “having relations” with clients is “just a bad idea” because…

Celebration Thursday

Update: Official

In a thinly veiled attempt to erode the last bit of confidence that I had before the bar exam, my outgoing dean of student affairs sent my class rank today.  The diploma was nice.  The class rank was obnoxious.  As Connie Chung so eloquently sang, “Thanks for the memories.”
