My first piece on Social Earth

Greetings All, I come to you with another dispatch from the world of 3L-dom. I, like many of my friends and colleagues are still figuring out where we fit in, in the law and the world that surrounds it and or is powered by it. I am still attempting to connect all the dots, and will […]

Key Note Speech for the Boston Community Leadership Academy Event

I have been lucky enough to be selected to do the morning keynote speech this Friday for the BCLA youth leadership event. This is a great honor. I am excited to be able to connect with the youth and use my story as a way of inspiring them. It is especially great to use my […]

Semester in the Governor’s Office

If you looking for a great way to spend your final semester in law school I would highly recommend participating in the Semester in Practice program (SIP). I have been able to spend my last semester working everyday in the Office of the Governor’s Legal Counsel. I have had the opportunity work on regulatory issues, gaming issues, […]

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 […]

A Pitcher for PIP

Some cases I had while working at Greater Boston Legal Services last summer were complicated, involving me muttering (okay, cursing) under my breath about inscrutable Social Security regulations and the like. Occasionally, though, I got a case where someone was so cruelly and illegally being taken advantage of that all it took was a few […]

On Friday, the Student Government Association (SGA) hosted a social at a local bar for admitted students to unwind after a day of BU Law Preview Day programming at the law tower. The SGA also invited current students to mingle with the prospective students. A drink with my friends who are in SGA and a […]

Gay? Fine by BU Law**

Law school is about inspiration. You may spend countless hours in the library, more hours in classes, probably more hours in meetings and other networking functions, but ultimately you need to find your own motivation to persevere. Last fall, I was fortunate enough to serve as Treasurer for BU Law’s LGBTQ group, OutLaw. OutLaw has […]

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 […]

Dyeing To Fit In

Every time I told myself ‘No more after this, this has got to stop before law school.‘ The bad habit I struggled to quit? Dying my hair fanciful colors. (The title was a horrible pun and I apologize.) I had been dying my hair various hues of purple for years. I liked the subtle little […]
