Today felt like another huge step in my journey to become an attorney. I turned in my first application for a position as an attorney. Obviously, any job I was offered would be contingent on passing the bar, but this was the first step in what I think will be many.
As part of the process, I had to get two written recommendations from lawyers I work with. The nice things that were said about me, had me wanting to blush or cry, I am not sure which. One described me as professional and fearless in court. WOW, not bad for a law student. The other said that I conducted myself in court with a composure that he has not seen in many attorney's who have been practicing for years. I consider these things to be the best part of all of law school, to have people I admire think such nice things.
Beyond that, it brings the end of school to be that much closer---and scarier.
