Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

If you missed my interview with Leigh Steinberg, I suggest you check it out. I am no longer a 1L! For those of you non-legal people, that means that I made it through the toughest year of law school. Hopefully, it will be all smooth sailing from here. I am back home in South Florida, where I will be working on Dynasty for the rest of this summer (minus a short trip to Israel from May 11-21). Picking the next two Dynasty interns is going to be close to impossible, but I am going to give it my best. Also, keep lookout for a HUGE change to the look of this site. I am working on a complete switch over to a new design, but it will take a while (expect it sometime at the end of May). Anyway, here are some stories I missed over the past week:

I am pretty much obligated to put the interview with Leigh Steinberg as the featured post of this past week. It was a great experience for me and hopefully a good read for all of you. Check it out by clicking on Featured, which is hanging around on the right sidebar.
