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 […]

It’s Time for Legal Follies!

BU Law students are known for their sense of humor.  Every year, a group of students dubbed the Legal Follies, put on a comedy performance.  The jokes mostly focus on, you guessed it, law school.  Even the professors get involved!  It’s a great time, and it’s awesome to see the talents of students outside of […]

Journals at BU Law

After 1L finals are complete, the dreaded writing competition looms.  The writing competition is half bluebook citation corrections and half legal writing, and your performance will determine which journal you end up on.  Students are allowed to opt out of the writing competition, but being on a journal is a valuable experience and it fulfills […]

Marriage and Law School

My first impression of law school was it would be full of single people, but to my surprise there is a healthy sized range of age, experiences, and statuses. There are students in their early to mid-20s, students closer to my age in their late 20s/early 30s, and slightly older. Some students are in relationships […]

Winter Wonderland

Since friends and family knew I was moving to Boston, everyone has warned me of the dreaded winters and nor’easters. I’ve been waiting hesitantly since December for a great storm and several feet of snow with harsh and bitter cold. Thus far, it has been a fairly mild winter in my book. Keep in mind, […]

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 […]
