Law School – 1L

My legal space

There’s an interesting series of posts over at Kootoyoo1 called “My Creative Space.” Kristy takes a picture of her creative space every Thursday.

I couldn’t commit to Thursdays, nor creativity…but I did take a few snaps of my study spaces over the past week.

This disaster is in the “computer lab” area of the law library:

The “computer lab” is really a series of study carrels. I think there were computers there at one point, before they forced everyone to buy overpriced laptops.  And yes, that’s 100% Cacao. Delicious.

More after the jump!


This picture was somehow still on my camera:

This picture is from Purple Onion Café in Dinkytown. Stella and I were studying Civil Procedure…sort of. Here’s a video.


This is at the Sullivan Café area in the law school. The man who works there randomly belts out opera.


This is in my room. And yes, that’s the infamous pickle jar.

I need to get better about throwing out my trash as I create it. I usually wait until I’m ready to leave, which means passersby get to see a nasty heap of trash by my books. Classy!

    Law students are creatures of mess. Your legal workspace is fairly minimalist compared to mine and the random stuff that surrounds me when I’m working.
