taking a side

  1. What I have gleaned from clerking and from practical courses such as trial advocacy, is that a case is built slowly, methodically, out of the best material you have at hand. It is important not to skip steps in this process, and make a procedural error, but also important not to rush, or try to accomplish too much too soon and lose on a gambit of style. I think this is why the practice of law is both science and art. It is the artistry, the judgment, which makes a good advocate great. I imagine it possible that the judge was well aware of Rodriguez before you brought it up, and had you not you may have made a procedural mistake. Maybe he just didn’t like your painting.
