Let it Snow

  We’ve already had our share of snow days this semester. Some winter storms have moved through New England that have shut down schools across the region. With as much as it’s been snowing, I’ve started to realize that the winter season reminds me of law school. As a Floridian I had to learn how […]

The Health Law Association’s Annual Firm Visit: Holland & Knight

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
