How to Make the Most of 'Love Your Lawyer Day' This Year

By Catherine Hodder, Esq.

Love your lawyer day is upon us. But if Love Your Lawyer Day is news to you, you might ask: Do people even know Love Your Lawyer Day exists? Do lawyers even know if it exists? By all odds, most people probably don't. It was created in 2001 by legal marketers as a campaign to soften the appearance of lawyers in the public's eyes. The idea is to provide a day where people can share positive experiences with lawyers. And if you think that one day a year isn't enough, there's also "Be Kind to Lawyers Day" and "Love Litigating Lawyers Day." (Leave it to lawyers to come up with more than one day.)

What Should Lawyers Do about Vampires, Werewolves, and Witches?

By Heather Kennedy-Bordeaux, Esq.

With all the sangria red, canary yellow, and marmalade orange-colored leaves falling onto a world pining for Halloween, the time is now to turn off your inner scaredy-cat and ask yourself a pointed question. Will you be prepared to represent the next vampire who stakes out your office, the werewolf clawing its way into your courtroom, or the witch in need of a lawyer for a spell? Before you answer in the affirmative and give yourself a full-size candy bar, you might want to consider that other trick-or-treaters have boldly gone before you. Consider the gauntlet they must have walked for these bite-sized treats.

What to Do If You Don't Pass the Bar Exam

By Laura Temme, Esq.

I didn’t sleep the night before my bar exam results came out. My thoughts raced, my stomach churned - I couldn’t stop thinking about how I would tell people if I had failed. Then I finally realized: The world would not stop turning if I didn’t pass. I would still have a job and a roof over my head. Luckily for me, I had already started down the path of an alternative legal career, so the stakes were different.

Lawyer Reprimanded for Coded Sexism in Court

By Holly South

How much do some lawyers think they can get away with these days? Apparently a lot, especially when they face adversity or don't get what they want. A boo-boo to the ego? Boom, slap you with an insult — subtle or overt — and call it a win. In a San Diego courtroom, the line was clearly crossed as to how far an immature lawyer might go to prove a point.

Billions in Federal Loans Involving For-Profit Schools to Be Forgiven

By Joseph Fawbush, Esq.

The federal Borrower Defense to Repayment program has become a financial lifeline to many student borrowers, particularly as for-profit schools proliferated during the 2000s and 2010s. This glut of for-profit schools left hundreds of thousands of students with a subpar or incomplete education and tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt. The program permits borrowers who were defrauded by their schools (such as ITT Tech) to have their federal student loans forgiven. As of this writing, the federal government has forgiven almost $8 billion in federal student loans to students who were defrauded or whose schools closed before they could complete their degrees.
