My main hobbies are writing and sports. And photography of course. When I wrote my books, I felt like a student. A little like doing the PhD again. My year in France was not wasted. Since I am not into pharmacology anymore, I felt happy that I had my knowledge in languages that I could rely on and develop. I didn´t write in French, but I remembered how important and difficult it is to use good language.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1993 until her recent death. Bill Clinton nominated her. Amy Coney Barrett is currently nominated by Donald Trump to replace Ginsburg. Judging should not be political since law should be regulated by law books with paragraphs. American law is different compared to eg EU law. Newspapers sometimes write some about judging in the USA, sentences that never would have been possible in the EU.
I stay at the Ally Mcbeal level. In Uppsala I met some people studing law, and the competition was high. They said that some students hid books for other law students. True or not, I don´t know. You needed a good grade so you could get a better position at next level in law studies.
Studies are over, but you constantly need to update your knowledge. New laws get into practice. Unfortunately, you need this knowledge to be able to see the whole picture.
