Entering the Arena

The first day.

Fear.Anxiety. Terror. Excitement. Anticipation.

It was exciting and scary.

I felt the need to be on my guard, to protect myself from any mischievousness of other tributes.

Luckily, I had only one class the first day and it was pretty simple. Lawyering Process.  It basically teaches you the mechanics of being a lawyer. Writing memos, case analyses, appeals, briefs, etc.

The second day was worse: Torts, Civil Procedure (Civ Pro), and Criminal Law (Crim Law).

Luckily for the first two they were more syllabus days since our professors didn’t give us advanced assignments. Civ Pro was our mock class during orientation, so we just kept on going.

First week in the arena was doable.
