Balancing Work and School

As September begins, the law clerks at Rice, Amundsen & Caperton, PLLC are fully immersed back into the law school routine: study, class, study, class, repeat. It seems hard to find time for much else. As a 2L, this will be the first time I attempt to balance both school and work, and naturally I am a little nervous about it.

Fortunately, Mr. Larry Rice understands the demands of law school (as all attorneys do), and he allows the law clerks at Rice, Amundsen & Caperton, PLLC to create their own work schedules during the school year. This freedom takes off a lot of the pressure that we, as clerks, feel to balance our ever-so-busy schedules and it makes everything seem much more manageable.

Although I am nervous about finding the perfect balance between school and work, it is reassuring to know that I have an employer who genuinely cares about his law clerk’s success, in all aspects, and is willing to let us decide what is best for us.
