Health Law Externship Program

So after three semesters of full class schedules, I decided to do something a little bit different. For the second half of my 2L year, I am taking only two law school classes (Corporations and Administrative Law) and I will be spending three days a week working in the Civil Division at the U.S. Attorney’s […]

Practice Makes Perfect

In law school you learn many things. Legal concepts, terminology, and theories along with a plethora of cases that have established important precedents are all common topics of discussion in your first year. It also teaches you how to write persuasively and present oral arguments. Yet, as someone who wants to do transactional work, I […]

Grades…dun, dun, dun!

Well, grades were posted this last week, and everyone I knew held their breaths while they refreshed their browser anxiously waiting to see that letter representation of their hard work. When I finally saw my grades, my heart skipped a few beats. I was disappointed. I did not know what to expect, but what I […]

Halfway Through the Woods

‘You can only run halfway into the woods before you’re running out of them’ has been my somewhat cryptic response to all the well-meaning inquiries about how it feels to be half way through law school. My classmate’s Facebook statuses all exuberantly proclaim that we are now “50% lawyers!” which strikes me as slightly over-optimistic considering […]

A day in the Life of an Early-Rising 2L

I did a “day in the life” post last year, and I think it’s time I do it again 2L year! If you were to look back over my posts from this time last year, I was gearing up for the crazy schedule the Follies cast faces between tomorrow (the first day of classes) and […]

New Year

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 […]

Resolve

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 […]

Learning Outside of the Classroom: Judicial Externship Program

BU Law offers a large variety of great courses, but one of my best experiences in law school thus far has taken place outside the classroom.  In the spring semester of my second year, I participated in BU Law’s Judicial Externship program.  I spent the semester as a judicial intern at the First Circuit Court […]
