I know I haven’t been very diligent in keeping my blog current, and for that, I apologize. However, last quarter I took 3 courses — two of which were the condensed, five-week courses — which was much more difficult than I imagined. My Contract Law course nearly took me down. The homework for this course consisted of 8 or 9 case briefs every week. For the seasoned paralegal, I imagine that this task would be quite easy; but for a student like me, it takes several hours to complete just one case brief. And then I still had homework from the other two classes I had to finish. It was brutal!
But, to use a well-worn cliché, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Only two more classes to go. I’m currently taking Tort Law, which is extremely interesting. Then, during the winter quarter of college, I will have my capstone. Since I work full-time and have no intention of quitting my job to complete a traditional internship, the Dean of the Criminal Justice Dept. at Colorado Technical University has arranged for a modified internship — my capstone — which is a series a research assignments given by one of our attorney–professors. As you can imagine, I am looking forward to my final class. Yippee!
