It's a job but without it I'd be less than what I expect from me*
OK...I know that officially I am the Queen of the Friday Funnies. However, of late I have been in a bit of 2L angst over what I really want to be when I grow up. And, after I asked readers over at Favorable Dicta to tell me about their jobs and why they liked them, I had requests from readers to make sure I compiled whatever information I got (and there was a similar request at Blawg Wisdom this week). So, here we go with what I have so far.
Blonde Justice has a great post on why she loves being a public defender. Additionally, I'm a PD is all about the day to day life of a PD and is very informative and interesting.
If you're wondering about what a day in the life of a DA looks like, Mister District Attorney is all over it...not only does he have this post describing what exactly a DA does and is, but he also did a "week in the life" series a couple of months ago.
I'm going to try to get together some other posts covering different areas, but lest you think I'm leaving you without some Friday humor...how about Rufus T. Firefly giving us some "alternate uses" for our law degrees. My fave? "Have laminated and then sharpen edges to slit the throat of the college career counselor who advised you to go to law school." Yup. I'm probably gonna go out and buy a laminating machine right this very weekend. Also, the Types of Lawyers series from Evan over at Notes From the (Legal) Underground is funny...but sometimes funny-a-little-too-close-to-home rather than funny-haha-none-of-this-applies-to-me.
