A Foodie’s Paradise

Before moving to Boston, I was unaware that the city had such a vibrant restaurant scene.  For my first two years of law school, I didn’t venture out of Brighton too much.  Now that I live in South End, I have all the wonderful restaurants within walking distance.  Little did I know these restaurants were […]

I Ran (So Far Away)

3.1 miles to be exact!  Last weekend, BU Law hosted its annual 5K race.  The race is open to students, friends and alumni, and faculty.  It was very well attended this year, and the school did a great job running (pun intended) the race.  This was my first year running and was pleasantly surprised to […]

It’s Time for Legal Follies!

BU Law students are known for their sense of humor.  Every year, a group of students dubbed the Legal Follies, put on a comedy performance.  The jokes mostly focus on, you guessed it, law school.  Even the professors get involved!  It’s a great time, and it’s awesome to see the talents of students outside of […]

Journals at BU Law

After 1L finals are complete, the dreaded writing competition looms.  The writing competition is half bluebook citation corrections and half legal writing, and your performance will determine which journal you end up on.  Students are allowed to opt out of the writing competition, but being on a journal is a valuable experience and it fulfills […]

Moot Court at BU Law

This is going to sound super nerdy, but I love moot court!  I often tell people that I lettered in high school, but I often fail to mention that my letter was in Speech and Debate.  People seem to think lettering in varsity football is cooler than Speech and Debate.  Whatever.  I had a blast […]

Hitting the Slopes in Maine

The SGA at BU Law does a great job organizing fun outings for the law students.  From chatting with friends at other law schools, I’ve gathered that BU Law’s SGA is exceptionally active.  One of my favorite events is the annual Ski Trip that took place last weekend.  Every year, BU Law arranges for students […]

East Coast Benefits

One of the best things about going to school in a major city on the east coast is how easy it is to travel to other major cities on the east coast.  I’m originally from Washington state, and the west coast (best coast) will always be home.  I must admit, however, that having New York […]

Getting Involved: American Constitution Society

There are many great student groups at BU Law, but one of my favorites is the American Constitution Society (ACS).  ACS is the progressive counterpart to the Federalist Society and believes “that law should be a force to improve the lives of all people.” As a first-year student, I served as our section’s representative, and […]

Learning Outside of the Classroom: Judicial Externship Program

BU Law offers a large variety of great courses, but one of my best experiences in law school thus far has taken place outside the classroom.  In the spring semester of my second year, I participated in BU Law’s Judicial Externship program.  I spent the semester as a judicial intern at the First Circuit Court […]

Wake Up and Draw the Roses

The City of Boston has a lot to offer.  Unfortunately, many people become consumed with their professional lives and fail to see all of the great opportunities right around them.  Law students are exceptionally susceptible to this fate.  I, for one, wish I would have taken the chance to do more things in Boston during […]
