Bench-to-Bedside Biomedical Innovations

I’ve written previously about the fantastic extracurriculars in the BU community, but as far as the academics themselves we’re totally confined to legal studies, right? No. You can actually cross register with almost any school on campus. It is however up to you to consider how future would-be employers will evaluate your decision to eschew […]

Do You Blog?

We live in an age dominated by social media. Twitter has become a news source for millennials and broadcast networks alike. Facebook allows people from all over the world to stay connected. When people have thoughts that go beyond the scope of these social networks, they often turn to blogging. Blogs are a way for […]

Home For The Holidays

Here I am back in Florida, enjoying the sunshine and the warm weather before heading back to Boston for my last semester of law school. It’s always great spending time with family in addition to getting some much needed rest and relaxation. I appreciate being able to make it home for the holidays. Even though […]

Free From the Curve

There are times when the law school experience can be rough to say the least -at times that is a catastrophic understatement- but fellow law student friends can be an absolute saving grace. It’s incredible to have people who know firsthand what you’re going through, and even better to have people who know exactly what you’e […]

Efficiency & Studying: Split Up the Grunt Work

As many people will tell you, studying for law school exams is often about the process as much as the final product; writing an outline is generally more important than having an outline next to you during an exam. There are some parts of studying that are just task work that must be completed before […]

Location, Location, Location

It’s common knowledge that how valuable a piece of real estate is depends on where it is. Location is also an important factor when it comes to deciding where to go to law school. One thing I often thought about when I was sending in applications was where I would be living. Considering I would […]

Enjoying The Ride

The holidays are a time for travelling. The roads are crowded with people heading home to visit their families. Sometimes it can take more time than expected to reach your final destination, but when you finally do it feels great. Too often we’re so focused on getting wherever we’re going that we forget to actually […]

Firms Make Impressions Too

Your reputation precedes you, and if it doesn’t, how you carry yourself will quickly color how people interact with you. Keep in mind that although it is immensely important to ensure you interact well with attorneys and various individuals in law firms, it is equally important you also build a good reputation with your peers. […]

Boston in the Fall

One recent Sunday afternoon, I left the law library, in need of a study break. I walked the footbridge over Storrow Drive to the path that runs along the Charles River. It was the weekend of the Head of the Charles, the world’s largest rowing regatta, and the races conveniently start at the BU boathouse, […]

The Process

Many people request upperclassmen outlines. It is very helpful to see how others who have gone through the 1L process organized, formatted, and understood the information. While upperclassmen outlines are great reference point, they are not meant to be a shortcut to the process of outline. When law students talk about outlines and outlining, it […]
