On Monday, July 23, celebrated its 5th anniversary. Ah, 2007–how long ago it seems! The iPhone had just been released. Spider-Man 3 was the top-grossing movie. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows had just come out. No one had heard of our most prolific commenter, B. McLeod. It was a different era.

What’s changed in your life since 2007? Did you graduate from law school? Change firms? Hike the Appalachian Trail? What would have surprised you about your present life, had you known about it five years ago?

Answer in the comments.

Read the answers to last week’s question: What Is Your All-Time Favorite Legal Novel?

Featured answer:

Posted by EBW: “Ms. Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ stands apart. There is ‘Mockingbird’, and then every other legal novel. ‘Mockingbird’ spoke to the people of the sixties. Its themes are universal and timeless. It is especially meaningful to those of us who were raised in rural Alabama. When the time came for us to face racism and wrong, we had an example. ‘Mockingbird’ asks: ‘Can you be Atticus?’ Ms. Lee taught us we could.”
