Law School

Law school is all you think it is:

* Students arguing with lecturers, people arguing over either very mundane or deep thing, but never anything in between.

* Madame ni vichwa ngumu, you can’t katia them, and when you do succeed to get them to consider you a boyfriend, they’ll drive you up a wall with their arguments.

* Everybody’s dreaming of their first case, and can’t wait to have a Danny Crane moment, like firing a shotgun in court. Power to the people!

* Criminal law is the shit. I got an A by the way, didn’t sleep the night before the exam, and then I hear those results won’t be used for my degree…Yeah, I know.

* Everyone’s a highbrow writer, and wears glasses.

* We have the odd lecturer who wears the same clothes, day in day out. There are a couple of rumours doing the rounds about how brilliant he is. Marxist…That’s what I call him.

* There’s obviously a classmate who doesn’t think he’s supposed to be in lawschool, he’s here to fulfill his father’s wishes. God. That still happens?! People, it’s 2011 for heaven-sake!

* There’s the bookworm, to whom I say, bless the ground upon which you walk, for Lord Denning is watching from beyond the grave.

* There’s this nice girl you like, but she sees right through you. Creepy.

That’s lawschool for you.

    I’m in law school. I do not wear glasses. I do not argue much except on paper (I think). I am not particularly looking forward to my first case. I have learnt that this might consist of:
    ‘if it may please your honour, Wambui for the accused’
    ‘i seek the court’s direction on the matter’
    blah blah
    *unspectacular cross-exam*
    blah blah
    *file written submissions*
    Case closed.
    My childish court case fantasies are no more.

    I worked for a law firm briefly…I get sleepy just thinking about it; endless supply of mundane courtroom documents blah blah blah. I couldn’t be a lawyer, if for no other reason than the sheer volume of boring paperwork required. Good luck though; we need good lawyers like N. Easterners need food.

  3. I can’t believe I threw that N.Eastern/Red Cross vibe get me into an appeal mood. but hey.
