A World Of Opportunity

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. We may come from places with cultures that have rich histories and traditions, yet we can still relate to one another on […]

Remember, Remember

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. If there’s one thing I’ve learned after a year of law school, it’s that there’s no best way to memorize the facts and law that may come in handy […]

Dressing the Part

Halloween is quickly approaching. A night filled with all sorts of sweets, plenty of parties, and more costumes than one could ever imagine. It can be a lot of fun to dress up and go out with friends. Putting on a mask allows us to become someone else and adopt a new personality for the […]

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 […]

Celebrating Diversity

          The fifth of May has arrived, which means that it is my first Cinco de Mayo in Boston. Here in the United States it’s a time to celebrate Mexican heritage, among other things. While most of us will be inside studying for our last week of exams instead of drinking […]

Entropy

Today is the first day of May. Many people celebrate it as May Day. In fact, not many people outside of the legal community are aware that there is an official day of celebration for those in the United States on this day. President Eisenhower announced that the first of May would be Law Day […]

Out of the Park

It’s that time of the year again. Spring training is over and the regular baseball season has begun. The Boston Red Sox are off to a great start with two big wins in New York against the Yankees. No matter what team you root for, the greatest thing about America’s pastime is the sense of […]

The House of Knowledge

Everyone who goes to BU Law knows about the construction that is going on around the law school. Thanks to a very large donation made by Sumner Redstone, what is now a rather vertically-oriented tower is expanding horizontally to include additional classrooms, study space, and much more. Our school is growing, and every time I […]
