Being Professionally Responsible

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam, otherwise known as the MPRE, is this weekend. For those of you who may not know much about the test, it’s a 2-hour, 60-question multiple-choice exam that is administered by the National Conference of Bar Examiners 3 times each year. It’s also required for admission to the Bar in all […]

The Rules of Health Law

I’ve had the opportunity to gain a great deal of practical skills during my time in law school.  I took a course on contract drafting, where I learned to review, edit, and write a variety of agreements. I did a health law externship, which allowed me to spend time outside of the school and gain […]

Oh, Those Summer Nights

It’s beginning to feel a lot like fall here in Boston. I enjoy the cooler weather, but I’m also going to miss the summer. This was my last summer as a law student, and it was a great one. Some of you may know that I did my health law externship last spring at Boston […]

New Year, New Building

Summer is over, and the fall semester of the 2014-2015 academic year at BU Law has officially begun.  With it comes a new building that all law students get to enjoy. The Law Tower that many of us spent the past two years taking classes in is now closed for renovations, but I am happy […]

The Externship Experience

This week I completed my externship at Boston Children’s Hospital. When I started at Children’s as part of the Health Law Externship Program, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought that since I was working with Dianne McCarthy, Chief Counsel for Research Affairs, I’d be reviewing consent forms and protocols throughout the semester. It […]

April Fools

April Fools’ Day is all about pranks. Websites change, special offers are introduced, and big announcements are made. Many of these turn out not to be real, but some are so realistic that many people actually believe them. It all comes down to the power of persuasion. When it comes to legal issues, there is […]

Take a Break

Spring break has come and gone. For some it is a week of rest and relaxation. For others it is a week of free time to catch up on studying and completing assignments. Some people travel and some people choose to stay in Boston. No matter what someone chooses to do over the week, I […]

The Legal Academy

Tonight is the 86th Academy Awards ceremony, also known as The Oscars. Awards will be given out for the Best Actor, Best Actress, and of course Best Picture of the year. With all of these accolades being awarded tonight, I think it’s time that I consider what the best parts of my 2L year have […]

Let it Snow

  We’ve already had our share of snow days this semester. Some winter storms have moved through New England that have shut down schools across the region. With as much as it’s been snowing, I’ve started to realize that the winter season reminds me of law school. As a Floridian I had to learn how […]

Loving the Law

February is the month of love. It’s a month full of people giving each other flowers, jewelry, hugs, kisses, candy, and cards. It is also a time for us to reflect on the people we love. Our family members are often the ones we love unconditionally. We do our best to love our friends and […]
