Practice Makes Perfect

In law school you learn many things. Legal concepts, terminology, and theories along with a plethora of cases that have established important precedents are all common topics of discussion in your first year. It also teaches you how to write persuasively and present oral arguments. Yet, as someone who wants to do transactional work, I […]

New Year

2013 was quite a year, full of unforgettable moments. Like most of us, Boston had its ups and downs. There was the Boston Marathon, but then there was the World Series. The year ahead most likely has much more in store for us. That’s why it’s important to continue looking forward. As the first day […]

Resolve

We’ve reached the final month of the year once again. With it comes the holidays along with the last day of 2013. December will come and go, and a new year will begin. This month is the perfect time to look back on the year and reflect on what went right as well as what […]

Deal or No Deal

It’s a small world. Don’t get me wrong, there are many different countries separated by oceans and mountains, but in the end I think there is more connecting people than keeping them apart.

Everyone has their own way of remembering things. For some people it’s flashcards, for others it’s taking extensive notes, and for others it’s creating detailed outlines.

Lady Justice

If you have cable, chances are you’ve seen Audi’s latest commercial depicting a dramatic sequence of events as a woman fills up her car at a gas station. Men stare in shock, a dog barks, and police officers run towards the station in an attempt to stop her from making the grave mistake of filling the […]

Winter Is Coming

I watch a lot of television. It’s a great way to relax at the end of a long day and looking forward to watching one of your favorite shows can help you get through whatever work you have left to do. One of the shows that I watch is Game of Thrones. If you’ve never […]

Those Summer Nights

            Summer is almost over. The temperature is beginning to drop and the days are getting shorter. As the first full week of my second year at BU Law comes to a close, I find myself thinking back to a summer of firsts. It was my first summer as a […]
