law-practice

anonymous asked:

I've recently been considering going to law school for the first time but I'm already a sophomore in college. Is it too late to just now be thinking about law school?

It is NEVER too late to think about law school. A lot of people come to law school as a second career - and bring their life and experiences with them to the practice of law. 

A lot of my classmates had gap years as well. They applied for law school after they graduated college and spent a year or two working depending on how many application cycles it took for them to get into the school that was the right fit for them. 

If you’re truly considering law school, focus on maintaining an upward trajectory of your grades. Go to a used bookstore and buy used LSAT prep books and used SAT or AP English prep books (I attribute my success in the LSAT reading comprehension sections to old AP English prep). Take your time getting a feel for the materials before you book your first test, and do not be afraid to take it twice. The exam is brutal - 7 hours + - and a lot of people do better the second time around simply because they know what to expect.  

The beautiful thing about law school is that you could go and spend half a life away exploring your passion and law school would always be there as an option whenever you decided you wanted to revisit it.

President Abraham Lincoln Gay

In 1837, the 28-year-old Abraham Lincoln arrived in Springfield, Illinois, to found a law practice. Almost immediately, he struck up a friendship with a 23-year-old shopkeeper named Joshua Speed. There may have been an element of calculation to this friendship, since Joshua’s father was a prominent judge, but the two clearly hit it off. Lincoln rented an apartment with Speed, where the two slept in the same bed. Sources from the time, including the two men themselves, describe them as inseparable.

Lincoln and Speed were close enough to still raise eyebrows today. Speed’s father died in 1840, and shortly afterwards, Joshua announced plans to return to the family plantation in Kentucky. The news seems to have stricken Lincoln. On January 1, 1841, he broke off his engagement with Mary Todd and made plans to follow Speed to Kentucky.

Speed left without him, but Lincoln followed a few months later, in July. In 1926, writer Carl Sandburg published a biography of Lincoln in which he described the relationship between the two men as having, “a streak of lavender, and spots soft as May violets.” Eventually, Joshua Speed would marry a woman named Fanny Henning. The marriage lasted 40 years, until Joshua’s death in 1882, and produced no children.

From 1862 to 1863, President Lincoln was accompanied by a bodyguard from the Pennsylvania Bucktail Brigade named Captain David Derickson. Unlike Joshua Speed, Derickson was a prodigious father, marrying twice and siring ten children. Like Speed, however, Derickson became a close friend of the president and also shared his bed while Mary Todd was away from Washington. According to an 1895 regimental history written by one of Derickson’s fellow officers:

“Captain Derickson, in particular, advanced so far in the President’s confidence and esteem that, in Mrs. Lincoln’s absence, he frequently spent the night at his cottage, sleeping in the same bed with him, and — it is said — making use of His Excellency’s night-shirt!”

Another source, the well-connected wife of Lincoln’s naval adjundant, wrote in her diary: “Tish says, ‘there is a Bucktail Soldier here devoted to the President, drives with him, & when Mrs L. is not home, sleeps with him.’ What stuff!”

Derickson’s association with Lincoln ended with his promotion and transfer in 1863.

27.10.2016 colourful revision notes for my legal english final and what my desk looks like at the moment - just another practice exam

Not really a question: Today I realized I literally billed a client for time I spent scrolling through your tumblr. There's no question here. I just thought you may enjoy knowing that you cost a client roughly $39 of my half-assed attention during a conference call.

perhaps I need to stage a seminar…

“I don’t practice law much these days.”

“And why is that?” Stiles asked, wondering why a handsome and presumably successful lawyer wouldn’t want to continue working.

“I’ve been drawn away by more pleasurable pursuits,” Peter said, lips quirked upward as he spoke.

When Stiles opens the door he is surprised by the appearance of the landlord, Mr. Hale looking much different than he imagined.

“He knew he shouldn’t have.  Daddy said the credit card was only for emergencies, but when Stiles had seen it, dripping with Swarovski crystals, he hadn’t been able to stop himself from clicking ‘add to cart.’  Usually, Daddy liked to pick out all his jewelry, but Stiles knew he would like this.”
