Fun on the real job......

One thing you realize quickly in your first un-intern job (I know not a real word) is that even after you are finished with law school, you really know nothing.  You have no idea how to do anything practical....  Sure, you know what a pleading looks like, but you actually have no idea how to draft one.  The language that goes into it.  You can figure out the court rules (like font, pleading lines, headings) from reading the rule book -- but you have NO IDEA what really goes in one.  And you look at an example -- but it still is like reading greek....literally.

So school is not out when you are out.  Really the school of reality is just starting.  But it's fun.  There is something new every morning.
