More about the International Law Journal and the Writing Competition

Soon, you’ll finish your final 1L exam.  Hooray!  Overcome with joy (or something), you’ll head downstairs on a path that you hope will lead you to the most delicious beer of your life.  Not so fast!  Smirking 2L’s will greet you near the tower’s exit.  They’ll stuff a monstrous packet of paper into your hands, […]

Journal Community

Exams are fast approaching, but the 1Ls won’t be done with the semester after time is called on their last exam. After that last exam comes only a brief respite, followed by the (in)famous 1L Writing Competition. In preparation, the current 1Ls are – as I was last year – starting to think about which […]

Working While In Law School: Part II Legal Edition

‘Oh right, I’m good at this. In fact, I love this.’ That is not a thought most people get to have all that often in law school, and it isn’t one that’s occurred to me with much frequency while on call under the Socratic method or drafting a moot court memo. I’d like to think I […]

The Externship Experience

This week I completed my externship at Boston Children’s Hospital. When I started at Children’s as part of the Health Law Externship Program, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought that since I was working with Dianne McCarthy, Chief Counsel for Research Affairs, I’d be reviewing consent forms and protocols throughout the semester. It […]

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 […]

Running Through Law School

Note from Elizabeth: This is a guest-post from my friend and  BU Law classmate Amy Baral. The Boston Marathon is coming up in just a few short weeks, on April 21. Last year, I wrote about what it was like to see my home shattered, and what it might be like to pick up the […]

April Fools

April Fools’ Day is all about pranks. Websites change, special offers are introduced, and big announcements are made. Many of these turn out not to be real, but some are so realistic that many people actually believe them. It all comes down to the power of persuasion. When it comes to legal issues, there is […]

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 […]

Take a Break

Spring break has come and gone. For some it is a week of rest and relaxation. For others it is a week of free time to catch up on studying and completing assignments. Some people travel and some people choose to stay in Boston. No matter what someone chooses to do over the week, I […]

The Legal Academy

Tonight is the 86th Academy Awards ceremony, also known as The Oscars. Awards will be given out for the Best Actor, Best Actress, and of course Best Picture of the year. With all of these accolades being awarded tonight, I think it’s time that I consider what the best parts of my 2L year have […]
