Ladies and gentlemen of the jur-

At 9:35 a.m. on Monday, October 21, give or take a few minutes, I panicked. That day was supposed to be day one of two of a jury trial. Just over a year ago, as part of BU’s Civil Clinic, I got a housing case. My client lived in an apartment with a host of […]

Universal Health Care Reform

The BU Health Law Association recently hosted this great event last week and I wrote up a summary for the BU website- figured I should share on the blog, too! 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 […]

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 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 […]

Anti-Social Enterprise

To all my third year law friends, I apologize for my absence of the last couple of months. My antisocial-ness has been directly attributable to my attempt to build a social enterprise. I understand that the idea that I am not being social so that I can engage in social entrepreneurship sounds pompous at worst […]

To Do, or Not to Do? Extra-Curricular Activities and 1L Year.

We have only eight days before opening night of the Legal Follies performance, and we are busy, busy, busy! By now I’ve told you about my grueling schedule (I’m at the law tower from 9am to at least 9pm almost every day) during the Follies’ big crunch time, and I’ve told you how it affects […]
