“Becoming Lawyers in the Shadow of Brown,” 40 Washburn Univ. L. Rev. 1 (2000)
Tonight is a time to look back on your three years as law students, and look forward to your future as lawyers. What lies ahead? There are many things you can do with a law degree, many professional lives you can lead. Some of you will work in government, others for nonprofits, still others in the private sector. Will you try cases, argue appeals, or structure transactions? How much should you specialize? In house or outside counsel? Big firm or boutique? Part time or full time? These are some of the choices you confront. Topeka or not Topeka-that too is a question.
