They're so anxious for me in Court

They couldn't even wait for me to graduate. I received my first Texas jury summons today. I am to report on May 17th. I graduate May 19th. Is it really so important for the County that I start appearing in court before I actually have my law degree?

I have no problem with serving on a jury generally, but I'm right in the middle of bar prep that week and I have family in town.

I am pretty sure that since I will have not yet graduated, I technically will still be a student, which should qualify me to get out of jury duty. Still, the timing really couldn't have been more apt.

You'll probably get out of it. I hear that they don't like people who are familiar with the system either.
