I am excited to announce the next step in my career…I’m off to law school. This summer, I will finish up two years reporting at NY1 News and head back home to Los Angeles to attend UCLA Law School. I have had an incredible time working as a one-man-band reporter for NY1 News, having had the opportunity to cover major stories including the resignation of Queens Rep. Anthony Weiner and the aftermath of Hurricane Irene in both Queens and Staten Island. Yet, its time for a new beginning, and I am thrilled to be taking the next step in my career as I head back to school.
As I pursue my law degree, I want to continue my work as a reporter, so I have started a new legal news blog The Legal Lady, where I offer daily analysis on the top legal stories of the day. I hope to one day combine the two fields of journalism and law and work as a legal news reporter. Legal news blogging is a new venture for me, but I’ve really enjoyed giving my take on stories from the Conrad Murray sentencing to Rod Blagojevich’s sentencing to the latest copyright infringement suits in Hollywood. Thus far, my work has been published in The Huffington Post as well as on Yahoo, BlogHer & Galtime. Stay tuned for more updates, and in the meantime, check out The Legal Lady!
