The past two days I have spent in court watching settlement conferences and motions arguments. Both have been a really cool experiences and after spending two days at court I have realized if I end up pursing a career in law I want to be a court/trial attorney. I like studying case law and preparing documents for trial, but there is something unique about attending court. The minute you enter the room, you can feel the case come to life. After sitting and watching these proceedings I finally felt like the cases I have been working on are real issues, with real people. Up until the past few days I had not experienced anything like this before. I was so excited to be able to attend court hearings and I hope to be able to go again. The lawyer I followed around all day was so nice and a very animated person. He is clearly a pro at what he does. He made the proceedings interesting and even let me participate. My name was once again put on the record!
