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 […]

Loving the Law

February is the month of love. It’s a month full of people giving each other flowers, jewelry, hugs, kisses, candy, and cards. It is also a time for us to reflect on the people we love. Our family members are often the ones we love unconditionally. We do our best to love our friends and […]

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 […]

My classmate’s Facebook statuses all exuberantly proclaim that we are now “50% lawyers!” which strikes me as slightly over-optimistic considering […]

New Year

2013 was quite a year, full of unforgettable moments. Like most of us, Boston had its ups and downs. There was the Boston Marathon, but then there was the World Series. The year ahead most likely has much more in store for us. That’s why it’s important to continue looking forward. As the first day […]

We’ve reached the final month of the year once again. With it comes the holidays along with the last day of 2013. December will come and go, and a new year will begin. This month is the perfect time to look back on the year and reflect on what went right as well as what […]

Deal or No Deal

In life we all have to make choices. Sometimes there is only one option, and other times there are many. When it comes to final exams, choosing the study method that is most efficient for you personally can be the most important choice of all. If there is anything that can be learned from the […]
