Week 8:
Saying Goodbye


July 17, 2019 |      It is odd to think, but this is my last week as a Fellow at Octavia Legal. This week flew by so quickly it hardly seemed like I spent a full five days in the office. The last two days were filled with saying goodbye and going out for lunch. Although, as always, […]

Week 7:
LSAT this weekend? You shall pass!


July 12, 2019 | This whole week I have not been able to think of anything except the LSAT. Now for those of you who do not know, the LSAT is the test every student applying to law school must take — and, for those of you taking the LSAT, the title of this post if for you. The importance of […]

Week 6:
Making Sure the Job Gets Done


July 5, 2019 |      Given the Independence Day holiday weekend, this work week has been short. About two weeks ag, o my boss let me know that I would be able to work from home on Wednesday and gave me Thursday through Friday off to enjoy the holiday with family. Although, this meant I had to work extra […]

Week 5:
Making the Transition

However, this week, I transitioned to the administrative side of working in a small law firm. On one of my very first days at the firm […]

Week 4:
Volunteering


June 21, 2019 |      I learned something new and neat about Octavia Legal Associates this past week.  On Monday morning, I walked into the office and found out we were going to be participating in a couple of different meetings this week.  As my boss explained to me, sessions were set up with various law firms across […]

Week 3:
Fitting Together


June 14, 2019 | This week I feel like things have finally begun to fall into place. Two things make me say this 1) I finally feel like I know what my role is going to be this summer 2) I feel like I have begun to understand the mechanics of the office. Starting with the first point, I […]

Week 2:
It’s All About The Little Things


June 6, 2019 | It is crazy to think we are already rounding the corner on our third week of this exciting eight-week adventure.  In the first two weeks of working for Octavia Legal Associates, I have learned a lot. Arguably, the most important thing I have learned so far is that the law is all about the little […]

Week 1:
Loving it Already


May 26, 2019 | Getting ready for my first week in Madison, Wisconsin has been a whirlwind. Classes ended at Cornell on May 8th, but I was in Mt. Vernon until May 13 to help check out all the graduating seniors as an Resident Assistant. After that, I spent about 5 days in Northfield, Minnesota, my hometown, until the […]
