Transcription

Well, if I'm working I'm reading, we have briefs we have draft opinions, research, memos. And so on any given day if I walk into the office there's a pile that's been waiting for me. My job is to get through it, so when it comes time to vote on cases I'm prepared when it comes time to hear oral arguments on cases, I'm prepared and can ask intelligent questions that help me and help my fellow justices decide the case. Never thought I would be a lawyer, never thought I would be a judge until I became close to becoming one. I went to Auburn university and studied international business, stumbled into law school after that with a goal of studying international law. Took one course in international law and decided that's not what I wanted to do. From there, I focused on criminal prosecution, my first job after graduating law school was in the attorney general's office where I did property tax. And I did property tax for the first four or five years, the last few years in the attorney general office, I focused on consumer protection, went from there to work for the governor. The governor appointed me to the court in 2005. Well wherever you go to college, you want to learn and learn how to learn. That can be done well at any number of places. And Auburn of course did that. You're going to do your classwork, of course you're focused on that because that's why you're here. But if you go to your classroom, and then go home to your dorm or your apartment and hide, you're going to be miserable. And you're going to miss on all the opportunities to really grow. And so while you're here you want to grow academically, you want to grow socially, and you want to grow spiritually. So when the classroom is over, when class time is over, get out. Get involved in campus activities, get involved in organizational life. Everybody is pouring themselves into the university in some form or fashion, that's what makes it great. Find your way to pour in, you'll make the university better, and you'll grow so much more than you can ever imagine.
