This is a photo from the wedding that Shirley performed for me and my husband, Greg Boyer, in Madison on June 28, 2002. (When I suggested swapping “husband and wife” in our minimal vows for “partners,” she admonished that the statute – providing the citation off the top of her head – required “husband and wife.”)
My work requires a lot of writing, and my ability to write well and quickly is recognized and valued in my organization. As others have said, I learned how to write during my clerkship. I also got inspired to travel to places I would never have imagined going. I’m grateful for both of those things!
My memories – Still maybe the best job ever, and a boss I will always admire greatly. I learned lessons that I have passed down to many of the interns and attorneys who have worked for me. I was reminded that “We must thoroughly address every party and every argument” after I failed to address an argument in a pro se brief based on the Declaration of Independence.
