Running Through Law School

Note from Elizabeth: This is a guest-post from my friend and  BU Law classmate Amy Baral. The Boston Marathon is coming up in just a few short weeks, on April 21. Last year, I wrote about what it was like to see my home shattered, and what it might be like to pick up the […]

Friday, April 4: Syrian Refugee Presentation at BU Law

From time to time, I’ve posted information on the Boston University International Human Rights Clinic’s fieldwork and research concerning Syrian refugees in Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon.  Now that our report is close to completion, I wanted to let everyone know about two presentations that the Clinic is hosting: one at BU Law and the […]

“America’s Political Dysfunction” Conference

It’s a rare occasion when you get to see your law professor raise his or her hand to ask a question. It’s not often you see your professor engaged in a spirited debate with a faculty member of another law school about the holding of a case you studied in constitutional law. It’s not every […]

Law School ≠ College

I recently visited my sister at Smith College, where she is a first year student. During this visit I was very surprised by the college lifestyle and I realized I hadn’t really thought about how it is to be a different law student rather than a college student. In this post, I’m going to reflect a little on […]

Not Being A Party Person At BU (Is fine)

This last weekend was BU Law SGA’s annual harbor cruise. I did not go. This post is about fitting in at BU Law if you are not really a party person (it totally works). A little background: I’m kind of a nerd. I like Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Bones, and anything written by Orson Scott […]

Health Law Association

I’m taking two classes related to health law and I’m the president of the BU Health Law Association (HLA). I first got involved with HLA last year as a 1L representative. Student organizations generally elect […]

Alumni and Internships

Here is another question from a prospective student, as relayed by the Admissions Office: “What kinds of internships do students do? Do you have specific examples of how an alum has helped a student get an internship/job?” First of all, students at BU Law do a wide variety of internships during their 1L summer. I personally […]

BU Law is Friendly: Admitted Students Preview Day

On Friday, the Student Government Association (SGA) hosted a social at a local bar for admitted students to unwind after a day of BU Law Preview Day programming at the law tower. The SGA also invited current students to mingle with the prospective students. A drink with my friends who are in SGA and a […]

Re: The law tower atmosphere

This week I’m writing to answer a specific question asked by a prospective student. Here is a “Question From the Road” that Jeff from Admissions has encountered in the past couple weeks: “What is the atmosphere like? Are students friendly?” I also received a similar question from a friend-of-a-friend trying to decide between BU Law […]

January Discoveries

Well it’s been about two and a half weeks that I’ve been back at the law tower. As the month winds down, here are a few great things I discovered about BU Law in January: 1. The Ski Trip Leading up to the annual BU Law ski trip, we were told that we just had […]
