Ep 6 – Melissa Murray (Pt 2)

Simply put, Melissa Murray is a super star in the legal profession.  In Part Two of our conversation, Melissa Murray takes us inside her interview with then Judge, and now Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, when she interviewed for a clerkship.  Melissa details how Justice Sotomayor became a mentor to her and why she credits Justice Sotomayor with creating the opportunity that led to her becoming a law professor.  Melissa also shares the inspiration behind her award winning article titled Marriage as Punishment which is a truly fascinating look at modern marriage through a historical lens to a time when the act of seduction was a crime.  Enjoy this episode of Iron Advocate as we continue to explore how lawyers can kill it in the law without it killing us.
