Last night at 8:30 pm, I walked out of my last exam of law school (God willing that I passed them all). It's been a long and difficult ride. It's also been a lot of fun and very fulfilling. Now that exams are over, I should be posting much more often. There are a bunch of pending Supreme Court decisions, the looming possibility that cert will be granted in the Parker DC handgun ban case, and a bunch of other legal news to discuss. I certainly won't be lacking material.
It feels weird to get out of "exam" mode and into "never going to school again" mode. The exam period really takes over my entire life. I missed out on a lot of cool stuff during the last few weeks. I missed the WisPolitics Blog Summit, which I was interested in attending. I missed the Seventh Circuit Judicial Conference, which was being held a few blocks down the street from school. I missed out on having a beer with Simon while he was here for the aforementioned conference. I missed seeing the Brewers crush the Pirates last Friday (box seats with full catering too). Sacrifices were definitely made during this exam period, but that's the way it has to be. And hey, I got a J.D. out of it (I hope).
Now I'm getting back to the job search process. If anyone knows of any cool legal or political job opportunities, drop me an e-mail at the linked address in the box at the top of the right hand column.
