As you have no doubt noticed I have not been posting much lately. It seems to happen to a lot of bloggers who start blogging so enthusiastically before law school -- once school starts free time disappears and when faced with a choice of sleep or blog, sleep wins. If I could think a post into existence this blog would be full of posts, but unfortunately it takes time and effort to write a post -- I am not the kind of person who can just dash a post off in five minutes. And blogging is pretty much at the bottom of my priority list right now (and for the foreseeable future). So I am taking a (possibly permanent) hiatus from blogging. I will leave the blog up for now in case I decide to restart, but for now you can consider this goodbye. I wish all the moms in or thinking about law school best of luck!

Time for the weekly Moms in Law School Roundup! A little late, but here are the best posts from the moms this week:
- Homecoming (Lag Liv)
- When the kids are away, mom will… study (Adventures of Law School Mama)
- The flexible nature of time (PT-LawMom)
- Going back in time (The Merits of the Case)
- Wishing it would go faster (Knocked Up (and in Law School))
- Counting Down (Mommy Wants to Go to Law School)
The Weekly Moms In Law School (MILS) Roundup is hosted on a rotating basis here, at PT-LawMom, and at A Little Fish in Law School and is usually posted no later than Monday morning. Next week’s MILS Roundup will be at PT-LawMom.
If you’d like to have your blog added to the MILS blogroll for weekly review or would like us to consider a specific post, drop the hostess(es) an email or leave a comment at their respective sites.

Law Students Building a Better Legal Profession (BBLP) has just released its rankings of big law firms in several markets across the country in areas like diversity, billable hours and pro bono hours. I found the documents on the "female opportunity gap" particularly interesting -- while at many law firms women make up between 35-50% of associates, they generally make up less than 20% of partners.
I don't think I will be working at a law firm after graduation, but I haven't completely ruled it out, and, regardless, I think what big law firms do is relevant to the legal profession as a whole because the big law firms are the most visible face of the legal profession. So I definitely support what BBLP are doing.
