I知 a lawyer!

Well, today was the swearing-in. I am officially a lawyer.

Who cannot give advice because I am not insured.

A professor at my school suggested I consider teaching, since I had helped so many pass law school. The profs are aware of this, had commented (positively) on it, and even sent some students to see me. My outlines are used or referenced by (I知 told) just about every student in the school. The outlines are all locked, though not pdf-ed, and identifiable even at a distance by their colors and really tiny font (size 8 in times new roman).

I think I壇 like teaching. It痴 what I致e been doing for years--explaining things. Hell, I did that at City College for biology class, and the teacher said that semester痴 average grade was the highest he壇 ever had and that it was because of my explaining things to people outside of class. And I HATED biology!

So maybe I知 a teacher. Not a bad thing.

Re: I知 a lawyer!

If that's where your talent lies, you really owe it to yourself to investigate it more. You've mentioned teaching before, and I really think you should give it a shot.

Congratulations, Propita!

Teaching is the best part of lawyering. If I ever left my job as a trial attorney, I'd love to teach Constitutional Law to undergraduates or high school students.

Re: I知 a lawyer!

Congratulations! You've obviously proven your teaching skills, so if teaching appeals to you, then go for it. You've worked hard to get to where you are now, so make sure you do what you enjoy the most.
