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 […]

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 […]

Transitions

I know I’ve written a lot about my involvement in the Health Law Association, but this time I’m writing about passing the torch to a new president. We recently held elections for the new board and the last task of the year is to help the new board transition into our roles. While standing there […]

Public Interesting

This month has been a bit of a rushed stress-fest, so in lieu of a story about law prom (which you should definitely go to, by the way!), I thought I’d offer an excerpt of an essay I recently wrote to explain my interest in public interest and pro bono work. Writing it reminded me […]

Your “junk” debt is my pro bono dream

When is the last time you saw a credit card company write a letter like this? Dear Valued Customer, How are you? We heard that you’re going through a tough time at work, and your kid needed emergency surgery last month. We understand that the price of food and gas has gone up, and it’s […]

Journals at BU Law

After 1L finals are complete, the dreaded writing competition looms.  The writing competition is half bluebook citation corrections and half legal writing, and your performance will determine which journal you end up on.  Students are allowed to opt out of the writing competition, but being on a journal is a valuable experience and it fulfills […]

Use Your Peers

Last year, I didn’t take advantage of having a student advisor as much as I should have. I’m not sure why a lot of 1Ls are hesitant to reach out to their advisor for help; I guess I didn’t really think of my advisor as a resource at the time.  Now that I am a […]

‘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 […]

Hitting the Slopes in Maine

The SGA at BU Law does a great job organizing fun outings for the law students.  From chatting with friends at other law schools, I’ve gathered that BU Law’s SGA is exceptionally active.  One of my favorite events is the annual Ski Trip that took place last weekend.  Every year, BU Law arranges for students […]
