Show Notes

In this episode of Topping the Curve, I interview Tatiana Hyman, a 3L at Fordham Law School, and the Editor-In-Chief of the Fordham Law Review. 

Throughout this episode Tatiana discusses how journal can provide valuable experience through editing, writing, leadership, and attention to detail, among other aspects. She talks about how regardless of your career path, the skills learned in journal can make you a better attorney. 

Tatiana goes on to discuss how she thought journal was only for litigators. She explains how and why she was wrong, and that even as an aspiring transactional attorney, journal has opened the doors for her that she had never imagined. 

We also touch on the community aspect of journal, and how important it is to network within your journal and among your journal’s alums. Importantly, we discuss how preparation for the write-on competition begins when you start your 1L year, and particularly in your legal writing class. 

Lastly, we talk about taking advantage of the opportunities that are available to you through your law school and through other networking opportunities, especially when there is no downfall, and it can only help you and your career.
