unconventional journey into law
- by Alice
a time, as a middle-aged homemaker, I paid
$24,500 to spend nine months in a place known as
the first-year of law school. To try to make
sense of the strange land, I wrote about my
"one hell year."
"Forsan et haec olim
meminisse iuvabit." Loosely translated,
that means that the day may come when even my ONE HELL year will be
pleasant to remember.
From beginning to end:
- Law School
Statistics for law schools
inside the D.C. Capital Beltway
