6 Things Every Newly Minted 21-Year-Old Should Do ASAP
Hayley Schmitt

I've officially been 21 for a few weeks now and quite a few of my friends have also recently joined the 21 club. During my short time of living the legal life so far, I've discovered that there a few things that I think every newly-legal person should do. Here are a few of them:

1. Go to tastings

Whether it be ordering a flight or going to wine tastings, it is good to try a little bit of everything so that you can discover what you like. Know what kind of "buzz words" that are used to describe your favorites and you will be able to order something you will love no matter where you go.

2. Learn how it is all made

Whether it be at a winery, distillery or brewry, learning how your favorite drinks are all made helps you appreciate them so much more.

3. Don't be afraid to try new drinks

Stepping outside of your comfort zone is the only way you will get a feel for everything out there. You can always get some mini bottles to try at first if you don't want to commit to a full bottle just yet.

4. Get some classic barware

From cute wine glasses to Moscow mule mugs, go to your nearest Target or HomeGoods and stock up. Don't forget a shaker!

5. Discover your go-to drink

While it is good to try new things, finding that go-to drink is important so you aren't stumped whenever it is your turn to order at the bar.

6. Don't forget to treat yourself

Now that you are legal, the possibilities are endless. Have mimosas at brunch with your friends or snag some deals at happy hour.

Of course, with everything on this list, make sure to have a designated driver or use Uber/Lyft. It is always better to be safe than sorry!

5 Reasons to Consider a Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty."

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple. Defense lawyers argue that their clients are innocent because they don't want their actions to seem suspect in any way. They essentially say for the sake of the argument itself. If you're trying to decide whether or not becoming a defense attorney is something you would like to do, here are five reasons why it's worth considering:
