The Leaders in Action Awards is Concordia’s annual event that honors professionals in the fields of Law and Education whom build positive outcomes throughout Idaho. Last week I had the opportunity to volunteer at the event. It is a great opportunity for students to not only attend an awards ceremony recognizing leaders in our community, but also a great opportunity to meet many leaders in the community.
Yesterday, March 1, 2017, the school hosted its annual Leaders in Action awards ceremony. My subsequent blog will be about the reward ceremony, but for this one, I am going to write about a topic that is near and dear to my heart—my decision to come to Concordia University School of Law. The Leaders in Action awards were held in Boise at the Pioneer Room at JUMP—the same room I will be graduating in in less than a few months. Honestly, it was a surreal moment being in that room, knowing that the end of law school is near.
Hello to all!
It’s been a relatively quiet few weeks at school for assignments and such, and thank goodness because most of us have the early springtime cold/flu.
I’m sure I am not the only one that has been shocked by the mess that is our country right now. You just have to turn on the TV or open Facebook to see people attacking each other, verbally and physically, too. Many sources are saying this is the least unified our country has ever been; those with a bit more historical perspective add the qualifier that this is the least unified we have been since the Civil War. One of my classmates, Jake, observed that people are scared.

Last week, January 27, 2017, was the annual spring career fair here at Concordia Law. The career fair is an excellent opportunity for students to meet some of the practicing attorneys and agencies around the Treasure Valley including the Ada County Prosecutors Office, Ada County Public Defenders, Fisher Rainey Hudson, St. Luke’s Health System, and many more. This opportunity is open for all students.
It’s Christmas Eve and I’m curled up on the couch with my new study buddy sleeping close by. I have a new puppy to be my partner in crime… er law.
Finals seem far away now, looking back from two weeks into break. Studying and exams were grueling and I have never been so stressed. The stress manifested both mentally and physically and I felt incredibly relieved when I turned in my last exam. I now await the posting of final grades.
