Omona, have you ever asked the universe for a sign and then it appeared?

I don't think they could actually use the stuff I submitted (or I would HOPE not, both for the reasons you mentioned but also because I hope they know their stuff better than me lolol but you never know). Yeah, UN is tough without connections, but it seems like such a slow bureaucratic place idk if I would enjoy it. Great for making connections and money (if permanent job, not temp contract).

They made it sound like it could be any type of law. Since we (Norway) are not in the EU, we opt into schemes, so not all EU directives are binding here, so there's a process of choosing/recommending what to opt into and what not to which I would be apart of, and it could be anything. My background before was the human rights/war crimes stuff, but this isn't really something that's regulated from EU level here so I feel like it wouldn't come up at all. Probably economic and trade stuff, maybe Brexit related deals too.

So the Bay area (right?) is where all the Scandinavians went?? They're missing the isolated houses (and maybe the government) but that's it!! There's nothing else here, just snow, darkness (this time of year) and... no that's all.

oooh neat. I used to do trade side of int'l law and while the regulatory aspects are *snooooze* the economic and policy stuff can be interesting. Wonky, but interesting. I did a few classes/papers on war crimes stuff and it is fascinating, but I don't know that I have the temperament to handle it. I think I'd lose my temper too much.

hee, and I meant Scandinavians around omona, not SF. In the U.S., back in the day, Scandinavians reportedly settled around the upper Midwest, with long cold winters, lots of land and lakes, and space. The houses are warmer there ...

What area of law are you in now? It was my """dream""" (and plan) for a bit (as in decade+) to do a PhD in American (!!!!) constitutional law, but the impracticality got in the way.

Aha, I'm still waiting for the other Norwegian omona peeps to show themselves, but yes! our lovely provider of got7 posts is of course another Nordic friend! I have family that went to "California" pre-WW1, but I have no idea where in California these Norwegians ended up. I think some of their descendants are now living in Seattle - which also seems way better climate-wise to me than this stinkhole.

oh good lord, I'm glad you dodged that PhD bullet. Few of my law professors had actual legal PhDs (S.J.D.s here); I'm not sure even half of them had LLMs (masters, v the JD practioners have.) Many seem to have made a name for themselves via practice + publishing articles.

I don't even know why in the U.S. we have the distinction between our JDs, LLMs, and SJDs. I am sure people get PhDs in it too. It's a mess. (I mean, I get some of it, but I hope you can see my eyerolling from there.)

Hee, sorry you don't enjoy your Norweigan towns. You don't like your boyfriend's either, right? I haven't made it there to visit, but my time will come.

Yeah I'm really glad that plan didn't happen lol even if that's what I (though I?) wanted for so long. Never any plans of actually working as a lawyer.

Oui, bf lives in Canada (Toronto) so it's an actual city, but again so cold and generic and boring. I'm not sure what the idea city would be like though. But nothing where Ice Bar can be a thing due to the friendly climate!
