To all my former students taking the California Bar, this February is yours to pass! And, to all my new students taking the Florida Bar Exam and to my bar review students taking bar exams in states throughout the nation, make this coming week your lucky week. I know how hard you have all worked, and know that your voices are needed.
We are and must remain a nation of laws. It is more important than ever for good, smart, motivated, energized people to go to law school, study hard, and learn to appropriately and effectively use the tools of our democracy for justice, equality opportunity under law, and to preserve and protect the rights of all people.
Think about “the man (or woman!) in the mirror” and ask yourself what you want to do to make a difference.
