Update from Jackson Price

Brother Price had a few words to say!

“It’s been a whirlwind year for me—busy, but very productive.  I graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law in May.  Literally the day after I walked across the stage to receive my diploma I started my bar review course.  For the next two months I watched the summer slip away, locked in my basement studying for the exam.  I took the North Carolina bar at the end of July and I can proudly announce that I just found out that I passed!  In October I will start working in the Charlotte office of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice in the area of business litigation.

At the moment, I’m typing this from the balcony of my hotel in Sveti Stefan, Montenegro, overlooking one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.  Studying for the bar might have robbed me of the majority of my summer, but with a little over two months between taking the exam and starting my job, I decided to get out of the country and have a bit of an adventure.  My girlfriend, Kati, and I are in the middle of a two-month backpacking trip across Eastern Europe.  We started in Prague and are slowly working our way down the Balkan Peninsula, culminating with a three-week tour of Turkey.  My pledgebrother Alex Loucks even came and met us in Prague for a week of traveling around the Czech Republic.  We’re doing it all—from soaking in the cave baths of Eastern Hungary to kayaking through sunken Roman ruins on the southern coast of Turkey.  A Slovenian monk even taught me how to open a bottle of champagne with a sword!  It’s been a great trip thus far and we still have a month left before having to enter the ‘real world.'”
