Law in Contemporary Society
My general objectives for this course are to enhance my understanding of law practice’s possibilities and to use this knowledge to challenge the ways I conceptualize my own career path. I hope to obtain finer understandings of the legal profession’s transformation in response to modes of production shifts and the attendant effects this process on occupational satisfaction. I would like to gain a more concrete sense of where practitioners have and have not found occupational fulfillment and freedom. Ultimately, I desire to come away from the course with a richer understanding of the creative alternatives to the modern firm structure, how they were generated, and learn how to identify and realize them within my career.

Woops... My core reasons for attending law school are two - though as time passes I find them in tension and their relative import in flux. Initially, I viewed the legal profession as an avenue for upward mobility and, only secondarily, as an vehicle for societal betterment. I find the former end increasingly unsatisfying and the closer I approach the conventional channels toward it I had previously romanticized, the more underwhelming they appear. I'd like to come away from this course with a greater understanding of how to synthesize and satisfy these twin-aims, while retaining control over my labor and work-product.
