I have stayed pretty quiet on the blog front for so many reasons.... but one critical one was studying for the bar and then trying not to freak out. This is a multiple time I have taken it.
But my dear readers --- today I found out I PASSED THE BAR! That's right. I am Lisa Wright, esq. That feels so incredible to be able to type and announce here.
So how did I do it? I focused almost exclusively on MBE stuff. I used Kaplan (AWESOME, BTW) and I used Benchprep..... both programs have 1000's of questions and they tear the answers apart. I also bought a book "Starting your campaign for the MBE" written by a law professor and bar grader...... best book ever. I found some of the mistakes I was making. I learned to find the red herrings very, very fast.
So October 4th is the big day! As I embark this next journey, I am going to try so hard to chronicle what is going on.
For now, I am working in the admissions office of the College of Law at Willamette. I am going to write some things about some of the AWESOME programs they have started there that I think are great for single parents. And I will write about job hunting, possibly setting up a practice, and the mentoring process in Oregon. There's a lot to talk about.... ALOT.
