One thing that has stood out the most to me is the utilization of Zoom. During a time where I have been mostly confined to my home due to the pandemic I have still been able to accomplish so much. I have been to at least three pre-law conferences, attended NBLSA (https://www.nblsa.org) workshops, and met the incoming students that will be studying with me at University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law.......all from the comfort of my own home. I have networked with aspiring law students, current law students, and even lawyers that are currently partners in their law firm. In a field where minorities are even more of a minority, the majority of the people that I am describing meeting are black or persons of color. It has been absolutely awe-inspiring to meet people that look just like me that have overcome the odds and are major players in the field of law.....some even while still in law school. It lets me know that this can be done and it gives me the visual that I hope to invoke in others that I speak with or that read this blog. Becoming a black lawyer is not some far fetched dream, it is an inevitability for those that dare to step out on faith and put in the work. I cannot wait to start in August, and I have already began prep work, and even enrolled in the CLEO 1L Prep Course (https://cleoinc.org/aie) to get started, however, I am also considering the Barbri (https://lawpreview.barbri.com/law-school-prep-course) as I have heard great things about it as well. My goal is to be in the top of my class, and I know that preparation beforehand will go a long way. I highly recommend you take a look at these, or any others that my come with high reviews. We owe it to ourselves to be the best we can be, and I am going to do everything that I can to ensure that I land at the top.
