I believe that access to the legal system should not be reserved for any one class of persons. And, I believe that as attorneys, we have a responsibility to look at the whole person, finding legal remedies that will benefit who a client is and what they need. I also believe that everyone has a right to feel safe, secure, and protected in their own person, and lack of access to the legal field should not keep people living in fear.
Surviving law school:
Remember who you are and why you came there. And, find an amazing group of friends and then support each other, no matter what. It is invaluable to have someone to study with, someone to talk to, and someone to goof off with in those few, precious moments of free time.

TIME.COM. I especially enjoy the Top Ten lists. I have learned so many things about absolutely nothing!
Words to live by:
"Decide what to be and go be it." The Avett Brothers; "If there were no problems, what need would would we have for courage and wisdom?"; "You will discover that it is important to believe in the path you have chosen even if others can't see where you are going."
