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 […]

Springing Forward

580 Commonwealth Avenue Spring is in the air here in Boston. This year the groundhog told us that spring would come early, and I believe he was right. It may be over a week before the season officially begins, but it is already starting to feel like springtime in the city. The month of March […]

Brewing Success

Boston is known for many things. It is a city filled with stories and historic landmarks everywhere you turn. I knew it would be a great place to live before I moved here and that there would always be something new to see or do. What I didn’t know was how much passion Bostonians had […]

Weathering the Storm

Today was the second time classes have been cancelled due to weather since I came to Boston.  The first time was during Hurricane Sandy.  This time, it was because of Winter Storm Nemo.  It may not have the fiercest name for a storm, but rest assured that this blizzard has been a big one.  It’s […]

Team: Together Everyone Achieves More

Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday. Sadly, the New England Patriots won’t be inside the Superdome this year.  With football coming to an end and baseball starting in a few months, what’s a sports fan to do? Thankfully, Boston has plenty of sports teams to go around. Lately I’ve been catching all of the Celtics and […]

The Gridiron

There are a lot of analogies in law school.  Analogy can be a powerful tool in forming a legal argument or a way to organize our thoughts.  It can also make things much more fun to think about.  With the NFL Conference Championships taking place tomorrow, there will be many BU Law students watching and […]

The Time of my Life

Winter break is almost over.  Students of all ages are heading back to school, and those who have had time off from their jobs now find themselves having to return to them.  The holidays have come and gone and a new year has begun.  Many memorable things have happened over these past two weeks.  In […]
