Did you see what Justice Scalia was wearing?

“It is the obvious which is so difficult to see most of the time. People say ‘It’s as plain as the nose on your face.’ But how much of the nose on your face can you see, unless someone holds a mirror up to you?” ― Isaac Asimov Boston University School of Law has a […]

The home stretch

In less than one month, I will be done with law school. 21 days, in fact. So, in this home stretch, I thought I would share a few closing thoughts – the first on making friends in law school. Making friends is both difficult and easy. In your first year, you are stuck with the […]

A Foodie’s Paradise

Before moving to Boston, I was unaware that the city had such a vibrant restaurant scene.  For my first two years of law school, I didn’t venture out of Brighton too much.  Now that I live in South End, I have all the wonderful restaurants within walking distance.  Little did I know these restaurants were […]

I Ran (So Far Away)

3.1 miles to be exact!  Last weekend, BU Law hosted its annual 5K race.  The race is open to students, friends and alumni, and faculty.  It was very well attended this year, and the school did a great job running (pun intended) the race.  This was my first year running and was pleasantly surprised to […]

The Strange Things I Miss About Home

There are many things I miss doing since I moved to Boston. Meeting my best friends for drinks, driving, and warmer weather as of March 1, but you start to realize interesting things you miss. For instance, based on my Google search, there are 0 Krispy Kreme Doughnut locations and I miss seeing the neon […]

Love on the rocks: Your relationship in law school

To honor the month of love, I thought I’d offer a few perspectives on surviving law school with your relationship intact. Being a law student is tough enough; add in your significant other and things can get a bit crazy. As in sleep-deprived, stress-eating, all-nighters-at-the-library crazy. My boyfriend and I were dating before I started […]

It’s Time for Legal Follies!

BU Law students are known for their sense of humor.  Every year, a group of students dubbed the Legal Follies, put on a comedy performance.  The jokes mostly focus on, you guessed it, law school.  Even the professors get involved!  It’s a great time, and it’s awesome to see the talents of students outside of […]

Marriage and Law School

My first impression of law school was it would be full of single people, but to my surprise there is a healthy sized range of age, experiences, and statuses. There are students in their early to mid-20s, students closer to my age in their late 20s/early 30s, and slightly older. Some students are in relationships […]

Winter Wonderland

Since friends and family knew I was moving to Boston, everyone has warned me of the dreaded winters and nor’easters. I’ve been waiting hesitantly since December for a great storm and several feet of snow with harsh and bitter cold. Thus far, it has been a fairly mild winter in my book. Keep in mind, […]

“A mind, once expanded by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions”

Two things you’ll get a lot of in law school: Oliver Wendell Holmes (the title of this post may be cheating — it comes from the senior Holmes, rather than the opining junior, of Supreme Courts of yore) and new experiences. This week brought one of my favorite mind-expanding undertakings to date. It’s not an […]
