Life After OCI

“OCI” is “On Campus Interviews,” and there are also “Off Campus Interviews.” The Career Development Office (CDO) invites several firms to select from applications you submit online through Simplicity. You will be asked to submit your application and wait to find out if you are selected. Based on which firms pick you, you will find […]

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 […]

Why Law School? Staying True to You

When you uproot your whole life to go back to school, people are naturally going to ask: Why law school? They’ll ask so many times you’ll never want to answer it again. When you’ve spent yet another night staring at your computer for a few too many hours, you might even ask yourself, and you […]

JD and …: Dual Degrees, Part 2

Last month, I started a blog series on dual degrees – “JD and…”. As a dual degree student, I wanted to share with you some thoughts on the advantages/disadvantages of an “extended educational experience” as I like to call it. In the first post, guest blogger Michael Cannella, shared his experience as a JD/MPH at […]

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, […]

Anti-Social Enterprise

To all my third year law friends, I apologize for my absence of the last couple of months. My antisocial-ness has been directly attributable to my attempt to build a social enterprise. I understand that the idea that I am not being social so that I can engage in social entrepreneurship sounds pompous at worst […]

Matters of Matriculation

3L has been an interesting, stressful, and strange year thus far. I suppose this is not the vibe that one would expect from a person on their way out of the halls of academia, which oftentimes feel like they are closing in on you. However, as an older student I feel a bit apprehensive about […]

A Day in the Life

Most days in law school even if they feel extremely similar are or can be very different depending on your class year, and depending on what activities you have self selected to participate in. Last year, a day in my life was pretty straight forward, almost all of my time was dedicated to working on […]

A different kind of law student

The beginning of 2L year is a busy time for many students.  In August, summer internships wind down and soon after students are busy with recruiting, which means resume collections, interviews, and eventually job offers. After classes start, many 2Ls find themselves submerged in work for their journals, researching for their notes and endlessly revising […]

Where Have We Been, Where Are We Going?

It’s here; that final autumn. For the past two years, I’ve been trapped in an ivory tower and yet, in a few short months, I’ll be shipped off with my freshly pressed shirt, polished shoes, and leather briefcase. But for now, I sit. In class. In the Public Interest Project Office. In meetings. The old […]
