As I transition from undergraduate college to either work, graduate school, or law school, I thought I'd put up this thread to network with those bronies who find their calling in the profession of law, or at least are keenly interested in the legal aspects of life and their social implications. A cursory survey of this site seems to reveal that this is not something that usually inspires passion in bronies. So far, I am the only one I know who has expressed "law" or "jurisprudence" as an interest on this site, and I've met only two bronies elsewhere so far who have expressed such an interest-- one of them the author of the Tumblr "Lawyer Warrior" who has not updated in over two years. There's fairly good reason to believe that law students (prospective and current) and lawyers are at least underrepresented here. Not only do the demands of the training and profession seem to preclude trifles such as posting on a site devoted to a little kid's show (however sophisticated it may be), but the brony and lawyer personalities seem divergent: While both bronies and lawyers are considerably more likely to have the INTJ personality type than the general population, bronies tend to be less neurotic and more agreeable than the general population while for lawyers it is the opposite (this link focuses on "skepticism" rather than "agreeableness", but I find the substitution at least party valid; another study seems to indicate that traits associated with agreeableness are also less common in lawyers). As for me, my interest in law is mostly in intellectual property, although I'm also fairly attracted to constitutional law and planning law. I won't repeat the personal statement I've already sent to several law schools, but I once wrote a paper on the now-discontinued "moral utility doctrine" of patent law where I explored the possible need and necessary reforms for revival. So if you're a lawyer, law school student (prospective or current), or merely interested in the field of law, feel free to share your ambitions, trials (both literal and figurative), and difficulties here. (If you want to discuss specific legal concepts that's probably best left to the Debate Pit.)
Hello everypony! I am Mia Neigh, judge for Ponyville's court. You probably don't know me, as I had only a brief entrance of the show during one of Pinkie Pie's Smile songs (I swear, she does that every week or so) In case you still don't know me, I am the green pony there. I am generally busy, but in my spare time I like to enlighten ponies about Equestria's laws and court system. Feel free to ask any questions!
