I was asked by a classmate to reflect on my experiences at law school and after, since I was one of the few graduates in my year to go into what might be called "politics" or "public service." I was in good company, though. Another member of the class who ended up in politics is United States Senator Jeff Bingaman, who represents New Mexico.
Here's my reply to my "class correspondent." As you will see, I was reluctant about the law and law school, but I think it all worked out OK!
