Law school teaches you how to think uber-logically. So, on a show like CSI, where everything is intricate and interrelated and logic is so important, I had a real leg up in the writers’ room because my mind already had been trained to think that way. [Writing a CSI script] was not that much different from writing a legal brief because of all the theories and the arguments and the need to connect the dots.
