But anyway, to work. My lunch with the attorneys and paralegals was really interesting. On the walk to the restaurant I talked to my lead attorney about Arizona; he went to the University of Arizona for undergrad, my mom has lived in Tucson for 7 years. We did a bit of Tucson geography, and I turned the question into one of law school choice; I asked if it was wise to go to law school out West. He answered that it depended where I wanted to practice. Schools like UofA are regional, so if I choose to go there, I should expect to practice out there for at least a few years. Despite the exceedingly low cost of living, I'd rather stay on the East Coast, so I won't be rushing to change my lists too much. Once at lunch, the paralegals asked a lot of questions about law school, etc, which was definitely applicable to me. I did a lot more active listening than talking.
I sent in my law school first application last week and I'm dotting the i's on the remaining applications. Such a fun process (can you smell the sarcasm?)
Anyway, not much more to report on the internship front. I was supposed to meet with an attorney to present my findings to date, but she was out sick the day we were going to meet. Hopefully we'll meet tomorrow and I'll get some more guidance on what else to search.
I'll write more tomorrow (hopefully) after the meeting!
