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 […]

Reviewing the Semester

          The first semester of law school has come to an end.  With its ending comes feelings of satisfaction, relief, and happiness.  Yet, there’s one feeling that I believe every 1L appreciates more than the rest.  A feeling that sums up everything that we put into our first semester in a […]

Happy Holidays

          Holidays are wonderful things, especially for law students.  Most of them offer us some much-needed time off, or at least another occasion to relax and celebrate.  With the end of Hanukkah approaching,  I’ve been thinking about how the meaning of certain holidays has changed for me since I came to […]

The Professional Network

I like to think of myself as a pretty connected person.  Like many people, I have a Facebook account.  I also have accounts on Twitter, Tumblr, and LinkedIn.  Being “plugged in” to these few websites is enough for me, as it allows me to keep up with friends, family, and colleagues while sharing my thoughts […]

Relaxing in Style

With the last week of classes coming up, I can already feel the stress levels in the classroom increasing with each passing day.  Without a doubt, each of us experiences stress in different ways at different times.  Yet, no matter how stressed we become over time, we all will find our own ways of making […]
