Analogizing Law

My parents and I spoke for nearly 40 minutes today, which is a relatively longer conversation, even for us. Several of our long calls are memorable ones. Today’s definitely one of them. I don’t want to contextualize too much, but my dad and I spoke for a while about what public international law and constitutional law entailed, and how I imagined they intersected. I didn’t want to faff my way through any portion of the conversation – so I engaged with the questions he put forth and tried to answer them as honestly as I could. I enjoyed it. It made me think about how best to simplify the kind of complicated English we tend to slip into in this profession.

I analogized things with a burger today. Maybe that’s something I can take to the classroom someday soon.
