‘So proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning’

Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness, Bareheaded, Shoveling, Wrecking, Planning, Building, breaking, rebuilding, Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth, Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs, Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs […]

The Health Law Association’s Annual Firm Visit: Holland & Knight

Last Thursday evening marked the culmination of my largest responsibility as the Networking Director for BU’s Health Law Association (HLA) – our annual firm visit. This year I arranged for us to visit Holland & Knight, which is known in part for its large and diverse health law practice. I felt a lot of pressure […]

Moot Court at BU Law

This is going to sound super nerdy, but I love moot court!  I often tell people that I lettered in high school, but I often fail to mention that my letter was in Speech and Debate.  People seem to think lettering in varsity football is cooler than Speech and Debate.  Whatever.  I had a blast […]

Getting Involved: American Constitution Society

There are many great student groups at BU Law, but one of my favorites is the American Constitution Society (ACS).  ACS is the progressive counterpart to the Federalist Society and believes “that law should be a force to improve the lives of all people.” As a first-year student, I served as our section’s representative, and […]

One Blurry Year

It has been quite the adventurous year for me! In 2013, I lived in rainy Seattle, battled the Atlanta summer heat , and started law school in Boston. I even saw my first real snow and helped my friends make snow angels for the first time. People aren’t kidding when they say days can just […]

This is what relaxation looks like

I’d almost forgotten what it felt like to breathe. This year was a total whirlwind: The first week of January, we set a date for our wedding and finished up law school applications. In February, invitations went out, and offers were weighed. In March, we finalized plans to move to Boston and celebrated my birthday […]

Face to face, screen to screen

  You never promised me a social network, BU. But boy, have you delivered! I’ve been able to make my way through almost an entire semester of interaction, thanks to your Facebook presence and the connections made through it. Thanks for that. I’ve learned who’s quiet but hilarious, seen inside jokes evolve in the space […]

“America’s Political Dysfunction” Conference

It’s a rare occasion when you get to see your law professor raise his or her hand to ask a question. It’s not often you see your professor engaged in a spirited debate with a faculty member of another law school about the holding of a case you studied in constitutional law. It’s not every […]

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 […]

Fitness Classes… for Free?

I’m fond of the term “Free… with the cost of tuition” to describe the many sometimes-somewhat-hidden perks of being a BUSL law student, from the food provided by SGA and the many student activities groups to the computer chargers on loan in the Pappas library to the subject of today’s blog post: my Friday afternoon […]
