Like a lawyer... in court for the very first time!

I'm going to court today!

Since the stupid California Bar hasn't given us bar numbers yet -- or even bothered to tell us if we passed -- I don't get to do much more than sit around and watch the partner I work for argue a motion (one on which I did extensive work :)).

But still!

The only time I've been in a real court before was for a speeding ticket when I was nineteen. This is way more exciting, and there's no possibility of traffic school involved (in spite of the fact that I sped to work to try to get here on time -- only to find a voicemail saying we don't need to leave as early as we had discussed). Last summer, unfortunately none of the issues I worked on had anything in court while I was there, so I didn't get to do anything cool like this as a summer.

I'm so excited, I don't even care that I can't wear jeans on jeans Friday :)

Keep checking the bar website. They post your number there before they send it to you, for some inane reason.

Thanks, Eve!

micah -- It was long and the attorney sitting behind me annoyed the crap out of me. I was seriously ready to turn around and kick some ass.

Unfortunately, the judge COMPLETELY got the law wrong. Sigh. At least my partner and I knew we were right.

Thanks mythago -- although the important bar number I'm waiting for is my state bar number, the one that lets me actually call myself an "attorney." Which I still don't know if I'll get at this point :P
