« Reminder! | Main | Billable Hours »



Thanks for your very thoughtful response to my question. I was asking about law school and the law specifically, not the rest of your life. :) In contemplating this huge life change that I'm about to make, I have frequently wondered if I could have/should have/would have done it sooner, and how that might have happened. I just wondered what your view was from the other side.

Thanks also for posting about billable hours. Like others have said, it's always been a bit of a mystery to me how you get to a certain number of hours. Reading what you wrote confirms my reluctance to consider BIGLAW as a possible future path for my law career.


There was a woman in my class who was about 10 years older than me (36 or 37 in our first year). She had a 14 year old and a 16 year old -- high school aged kids. One day we were talking and she said something about me being so much further along than she was at my age -- already in law school. And I told her I thought she was so much further along than I was, having put the job of mothering small children behind her already, something I couldn't even imagine.
