Me! Yes, I am now a licensed attorney as I have passed the Illinois Bar Exam.
This is great news, of course, and I thank everyone for all their help, support, and interest, especially Colleen. It was a tough few months of really intensive studying, but it was worth it.
…I think. Since my new job doesn’t actually require that I either be a lawyer or that I be a licensed lawyer, and since I’ll likely not be practicing law anytime soon, I may find myself having to re-take the bar exam when I get “back” to law. So was it worth it?
Yes it was.
