OFF TOPICUpdate: I passed the bar! (self.RedPillWomen)

submitted by fairydust91

You ladies have read my moaning about living with my BF's parents for a year while we save (which has proved to be hard!) because I was paid crap money while interning.... Well I passed the bar!!! Woohooo! Guess who will be moving out sooner rather than later!! Any other lawyers here with advice on any specific steps I should take next??

Congratulations! Enjoy your swearing in ceremony! I don’t know where you live, but in my state, each newly minted Attorney is given their license by the Chief Justice of the state Supreme Court. It was awesome.

My advice is don’t get lost in your work. When you first turn out its easy to agree to take on pretty much any client or project because everything is new and exciting. Resist that urge! It took me over a year to get my caseload under control so I wasn’t having to work 60+ hours a week.

Good luck!

Don't do legal work of any sort without first being paid. That's the best advice going. Congrats on passing.
