After several years of almost non-stop studying and work, I’m happy to say I have finished law university.
Between the last 7years of university, life hasn’t been easy in the least.
I had to take out an astronomical amount of debt to pay for university, all the while, of course I was trying to hold down a task because I had no other source of income. Many of my privileged peers in school had no clue what kind of struggle I was facing in my day to day life by comparison to their own lives. Still, I kept my head up and envisioned a future where I’d be a good deal more comfortable, even if it still meant I’d be carefully working my ass off on a weekly basis. I just hoped and prayed that I’d earn more for my day job if I made the right sacrifices on my journey to becoming a licensed attorney. Nowadays that I have my license, I am eager to begin a practice. I have a neighbor from that same law university who wants to go into business with me, with the intention of adding more and more partners to the firm as both of us grow. Every one of us both went to a local business development center to get help and advice before both of us opened our own law practice to figure out the best decisions to make through every step of the process. They easily helped us find affordable commercial office space to rent that was contained in a building owned by the local school. Because they’re a state university, the monthly rent is extremely cheap and affordable compared to buildings a mile down the road. I’m excited for our new law firm and the brand new business occasions it will afford us.
