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 […]

Network, network, network!

The idea of networking seems to strike fear into the hearts of the meek. It feels formal and daunting. It pushes shy people far outside their comfort zone. I’ll admit that it can be incredibly intimidating, but it is one of the greatest skills you can gain. Before I started law school, I recall my […]

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 […]

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 […]

Universal Health Care Reform

The original piece can be found here: http://www.bu.edu/law/news/akdag.shtml   Universal Health Care Reform in Turkey: Overcoming Legal and Political Barriers On October 22nd, BU School of […]

Health Law Association

This year I am taking advantage of my newfound 2L freedom to dive deeper into the field of health law. I’m taking two classes related to health law and I’m the president of the BU Health Law Association (HLA). I first got involved with HLA last year as a 1L representative. Student organizations generally elect […]

Intro to Year Two

Yesterday morning I noticed a few yellow leaves around the base of the trees outside my apartment building. The chilly air reminded me of waiting for the school bus at my parent’s house back in New York. Summer is over and I’m starting my second year of law school – theoretically older and wiser, but […]

BU Law is Friendly: Admitted Students Preview Day

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 […]

The Week After Follies

Follies is over, so it’s time to reflect. First, there’s all of Follies week to think about, and then this week – both great weeks in their own way. (1) Follies Week Follies week is, in a word, insane. Starting last Monday we had rehearsal starting at 5:00pm and going until 10:00, 11:00, or even […]
