The Legal Beat
You Did It, Bar None! Woop Woop!
Posted on Thursday July 29, 2021
Hello from the other side! Some of you studied a reasonable amount of time each day over the last few months. Others crammed 1L outlines “borrowed” from a friend when they weren’t looking. You now have my permission to catch up on Netflix. The 5 hours you usually allocate to reviewing trusts and estates? Take a sleep. Not a nap, a sleep! Either way, you are here, and you can breathe knowing you don’t have to touch bar exam materials ever again.
Welcome to the profession [in a few months], future Esquires!
Chris Williams became a social media manager and assistant editor for Above the Law in June 2021. Prior to joining the staff, he moonlighted as a minor Memelord™ in the Facebook group Law School Memes for Edgy T14s. Before that, he wrote columns for an online magazine named The Muse Collaborative under the pen name Knehmo. He endured the great state of Missouri long enough to graduate from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. He is a former boatbuilder who cannot swim, a published author on critical race theory, philosophy, and humor, and has a love for cycling that occasionally annoys his peers. You can reach him by email at [email protected].
