Law school was a horrible shock to Jane Moore. She’d returned to school almost ten years after graduating from college and after marriage and the birth of three children. If she’d had any clue about law school or the practice of the law she would have walked out that first day. Foolishly she persevered. After law school and passing the bar, her first legal job was with a Bank – the Bank of California, which no longer exists, having been absorbed into Union Bank, now the Union Bank of California. Jane became the first person in her family, as far as she knew, to work in corporate America. It wasn’t for her, but it did give her great insight into corporate America. She left the Bank to work for the Federal Trade Commission, an independent federal commission that has anti-trust and consumer protection missions. She began work at a time when the more forceful FTC initiatives got into bad favor with the Reagan Republicans, even though the initiatives had begun as far back as the Nixon Administration and continued under other Republicans. The office was always being targeted for extinction. However, she had a brilliant head of the office, now a retired judge, who wooed the people back in Washington. They kept the office open and gave the head an award, although she never had a picture of Ronald Reagan in the office. When bigwigs came from DC, they’d borrow the picture from another agency. After the FTC Jane Moore went into private practice with her husband, really for her husband, as he is incapable of working with. Tired and near husbandcide, Moore began working with the Oakland Unified School District. That job and experiences are worthy of an entire novel so all I’ll say now is it was interesting. So interesting that Moore retired early and eventually happily stumbled upon NDNU. Now she knows she should have been teaching all along.
