Super Fantastic Dream Job!!

I guess news in the form of Facebook status doesn't travel as fast as I thought it did. C'mon, aren't we the technology-obsessed generation? Oh well. Unfortunately, it seems that some of you didn't hear: I GOT MY SUPER FANTASTIC DREAM JOB! At least for the summer. :)

That's right, kids, I have accepted a Legal Clerkship at the Animal Legal Defense Fund in Portland, Oregon and I am SOOOO excited.

In this economy, with my grades, etc. etc. etc., I don't know how I got this position. Well, wait, I don't want to sell myself too short. I AM pretty much dedicated to the field of Animal Law, and I think my enthusiasm came through during the interview. YAY! I feel so, so lucky.

Perks include people bringing their dogs to work, 9-5 schedule (rare in the legal world), staying with an oh-so-generous family friend in her gorgeous house, getting established in the Animal Law field, and a boss who has a sailboat in Washington. :)

Downsides: Leaving RightHand for yet another summer! Though, last summer was my trip around the world, so we are both counting our blessings this time and hoping he can visit. :)

Looking forward to sharing my experiences and photos with you all over the summer.

That's incredible! I give to them every year. It's one of my favorite groups and I absolutely love their work and admire the attorneys who do so much for the organization. Again, good for you!

The upside to the downside: When RightHand comes to visit, you can go out on your bosses sailboat!

Congrats on the new job! That is fantastic. Animal law is an interesting field and can be very rewarding.

I recently heard there is a new program at U. of FL. in the field of animal forensics.
