  • Update on Noah at Law School

    My son, Noah Smith, will be going to Washington DC next week to present a paper he co-authored. The work derives from a law school clinic in Human Rights at the University of California, Berkeley. There, he is a 3rd year student.

    Noah will graduate with his class this May. He has an internship with the EPA's regional office in San Francisco for the summer. Then, he must return in the fall to complete a few credits before taking the Bar Exam.

              It was great hearing from Noah by email before his trip. He lucked out with the rain and melting towers of snow.

              How did the trip and presentations go? The paper was impressive!

                thats great news, love to hear young kids doing good, you must be proud!
                We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

                        Way to go!
                        I saw that Noah wasn't impressed with DC's accessibility (er, lack) this time around either.

                            Here are some photos from Noah's graduation from Law School.

                            He started a summer internship in San Francisco at the Environmental Protection Agency. He plans to take the Bar Exam next February.

                            I wrote about it here.

                              Congrats to Noah for his achievement, and to you, Dad, for supporting him through this! Good luck to Noah on the bar exam...I think the initial pass rate in CA is about 50% but if he graduated at UC Berkley he is in good shape to be in the that 50% the first time.
