Juris Doctor

    “She believed she could, so she did.”

Last Saturday, my daughter Melody graduated from law school. She received her juris doctor from Loyola Law School. It was her life-long dream to become a lawyer. At only 23 years old, she’s accomplished her goal.

Melody’s worked very hard. She has survived years of undergraduate study, the competition to get into law school, the rigorous demands of legal academia, learning to think like a lawyer, and seeking the right position.

To say that I’m proud of her is the biggest understatement. Her work ethic and dedication are everything.

From what she told me, earning a juris doctor is no joke. The workload is immense and you’re competing with 200 or more of the hardest-working people you’ve ever met. In addition to working part-time, she had to grind out hours upon hours of book work.

Throughout all the high pressure, heavy workload, and fast-paced environment, she remained positive and upbeat. She survived law school, sanity intact. Thank you, lord.
