Introduction: Jordan Avey

Hi everyone! I am Jordan, a 2L here at Loyola. Normally I hate doing any type of introduction about myself because I have no idea what to say, but this is my second year as a Jury of Peers blogger, so I have gotten a little bit better about talking about myself.

Some general, basic things about me: I am 23 (almost 24) years old, from Elk Grove, CA (a suburb of Sacramento), went to undergrad at UC Santa Barbara (best college ever), addicted to caffeine (particularly coffee and Diet Coke), and a diehard University of Oklahoma Sooners fan.

I’ve known I wanted to attend law school since my freshman year of college when I first sat down in my Chemistry class. From that day on, I knew I would avoid science classes at all costs and stick to what I am good at: talking.

I came into law school thinking that I would be a personal injury lawyer or a medical malpractice attorney, but now I fully intend on becoming a prosecutor. My 1L Criminal Law class turned everything upside down and now I cannot imagine working in any other field.

When I am not on Loyola’s campus, which is rarely because of my involvement in extra-curricular activities (trust me, we will talk about them a lot this year, just you wait), I can be found sleeping, eating, or shopping. You know, the necessities. I can also be found writing this blog, so be on the lookout. More to come from my crazy life.
