Employee Spotlight: Michael Atkinson

Fri, 05/02/2014 - 12:58
pWelcome to the first installment of the law library's iEmployee Spotlight /iseries, which we're sure will become as wildly popular as Stephen Colbert's iBetter Know a District/i. /pp align=centerimg src=/sites/www.law.louisville.edu/files/profile-michaelatkinson.jpg / /ppFirst up is quot;Fightin' 3Lquot; bMichael Atkinson/b who has been a student worker since his second semester of law school. While serving as the SBA's Historian and earning Top Grades in three classes, he also managed to perform 365 hours of public service, which earned him the  a href=/node/14151Samuel L. Greenebaum Public Service Award/a and solidified his super hero law student status.b /b/pbWhat’s your hometown? /bbr /piJeffersonville, Indiana/i/ppbWhere did you complete your undergraduate degree and what was your major?/bbr /iIndiana University Southeast, and I majored in Political Science and International Studies./i /ppbWhat led you to law school and what do you plan to do with your law degree?/bbr /iAt IUS I took a class in Constitutional Rights and Liberties, focusing primarily on the First Amendment. I very much enjoyed discussing constitutional issues, and so decided to go to law school to continue that discussion. After law school I plan work in a field relating to legal research and writing, and eventually pursuing a Master of Library Science degree, as I am interested in becoming a law librarian someday. /i/ppbWhat do you enjoy about working in the law library? /bbr /iThe books, for one. Especially when I get to shelve the Supreme Court briefs in the attic with all the other historical volumes. At times I have to remind myself I'm supposed to be shelving the books and not reading them. /i/ppbWhat’s your favorite book?/bbr /iIt's very hard to pick just one, but one of my favorites is /iThe Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxyi by Douglas Adams. I particularly enjoyed his sense of wit and random hilarity. My other favorites include /iThe Lord of the Ringsi trilogy, /iDavid Copperfieldi, /iThe Remarkable Journey of Prince Jeni by Lloyd Alexander, and T/ihe Pushcart Wari by Jean F. Merrill. /i/ppbDo you have a favorite quote?/bbr /iquot;Everybody was a baby once, Arthur. Oh, sure, maybe not today, or even yesterday. But once. Babies, chum: tiny, dimpled, fleshy mirrors of our us-ness, that we parents hurl into the future, like leathery footballs of hope. And you've got to get a good spiral on that baby, or evil will make an interception!quot; ~The Tick. /i/ppbIf you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would that be?/bbr /iAssuming we're referring to real people and not fictional, I would very much like to have a conversation with the aforementioned Douglas Adams and J.R.R. Tolkien. I would also invite Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr. Bean) , Patrick Stewart, and Jennifer Lawrence.    /i/ppbIs there anything else you’d like to share?/bbr /iI have a *blog, a href=http://hypotheticallywriting.wordpress.comhypotheticallywriting.wordpress.com/a, where I write stories featuring random characters (like the heroic superhero Captain Happily Married) dealing with events such as zombie penguin apocalypses. I've also written a short story and several novels, which I self-published through Amazon. /i/pp*Editor's Note: In addition to his fictional short-stories, Michael has also journaled about his a href=http://hypotheticallywriting.wordpress.com/category/law-school-adventures/Law School Adventures/a. /ppnbsp;/p
