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, […]

Networking

Networking. Networking. The working of nets. Say it so many times the word loses shape in your mouth. It’s hard to conceive of how important networking actually is. From gathering information to one day garnering potential job leads, who you know is crucial. You have built-in colleagues in your peers and classmates, and maybe a […]

Cheering Each Other On

I was studying at a coffee shop. Writing a feminist jurisprudence paper about human trafficking, arguing (via the paper) with Catharine MacKinnon’s conception of sex work. My phone rang – it was my dad calling. “Hi Elizabeth.” “Hi Dad.” “Where are you?” “Uh, a coffee shop.” “Where?” “In Cambridge, why?” I was vaguely annoyed at […]

Springtime in Boston

It’s a beautiful spring day here in Boston, and because I’ve been studying all weekend and I’m not in the mood to write about anything related to law school, here are some things I’m loving about this time of year: 1. Patriots’ Day Today is Patriot’s Day! Huge perk of going to law school in […]

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 […]

PIP With a Purpose

I apologize to my many devoted readers (Do I even have those?!) for my absence this semester. As you may or may not know, currently, I serve as the Co-President of the Public Interest Project (“PIP”). PIP takes a large amount of my energy, especially as we prepare for our biggest fundraiser, our 22nd Annual […]

BU Law Alumni

The BU Law alumni community is just that: a very strong and ongoing part of the BU Law community, from speaking on panels to attending and mingling with students at networking events to offering one-on-one advising for students. There’s a rock-solid alumni base throughout New England and very respectable enclaves in D.C., New York, LA, […]

Detroit, Pt. 2

He asked if I minded if he ate breakfast while we talked. Of course not. First, he started eating an apple, trying to keep the juice from spraying the property tax bill I pushed across the desk towards him. But then he pulled out one of the most delicious smelling pieces of bread I have […]

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 […]
