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 […]

1L Mentee

Today was my first final exam as a 1L. I’ll write more on my thoughts on finals and my first semester as a law student in my next post but, as a way to decompress before I hit the books again tomorrow morning for my Contracts final next Monday, I want to express the gratitude […]

From gathering information to one day garnering potential job leads, who you know is crucial. You have built-in colleagues in your peers and classmates, and maybe a […]

BU Law Alumni

The BU Law alumni community is just that: a very strong and ongoing part of the BU Law community, from speaking on panels to attending and mingling with students at networking events to offering one-on-one advising for students. There’s a rock-solid alumni base throughout New England and very respectable enclaves in D.C., New York, LA, […]

BU Law Alumni

Jeff Williams, BU Law’s Assistant Director of Admissions, has received a number of “questions from the road” while meeting with prospective students, so I thought that I’d dedicate this next blog post to one such question – “What is the alumni network like?” Our network is without a doubt expansive.  BU alumni practice around the […]
