Finished Law School

This month is a huge milestone in my life. I graduated law school.

Over the last three years I have reported some of my grades and rankings here. I ended up in the top 11% of my class (missed the coveted top 10% by one one-hundredth of a grade point), with a cumulative GPA of 3.494. My family and I sacrificed a lot to put me through law school and we are proud of the accomplishment.

This July I will take the Louisiana bar exam and begin my career as an attorney. People often ask me what type of law I will practice. It is difficult to know this at the outset. My first job as a lawyer will be as an associate at Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South, LLP, a law firm in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I was hired as a “commercial litigator.” I worked there these past two summer and winter breaks as a law clerk and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Goodbye and good luck to my friends at LSU Law. I am sure that many of us will meet again in practice, sitting on opposite sides of the courtroom ;-)

Update (Nov., 2014): passed the bar on the first try and have been practicing law for about two years. It’s a great profession and very challenging. I wish I had done this years ago.

Online Editor of the Louisiana Law Review

I was recently made the Online Editor for volume 72 of the Louisiana Law Review. I was honored to accept the position, though I’m not sure how they figured out I knew about internet stuff. On a related note, the La. Law Rev. decided to accept my Comment, An Uncertain Prescription–Medical Malpractice Actions in Louisiana, for publication. It should be published sometime next year.
