“Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness ….” (Luke 4:1)
Imagine… You are sitting around a conference table with a number of other students your first year of law school. Let’s say in the first month, if not week. Perhaps you are sharing a meal. At the least, you are together in an open and collaborative environment.
Keep imagining… Whomever is facilitating — whether a law professor or maybe even an executive coach — explains the ground rules to everyone. I.E. this is a circle, a ritual gathering really to mark the beginning of your time in law school. Moreover, a gathering to establish tone and intention for what is ultimately a rite of passage.
I am in the homestretch on the book-writing project! The deadline is tomorrow and I have only four chapters left to write. Time to really focus! (That training as a litigator comes in handy at times.)
