New Building, New You

Within a few days of returning to the brand new Redstone building, the transition occurs quickly. Everyone is excited to see one another again and trade summer stories that range from work experiences to new adventures. For those of us who were the last to see the tower before its renovation, we eagerly examined and […]

3L Update

Unbelievably this is my last year at BUSL. It seems like just yesterday I was bewildered and lost in the halls of the law building… oh wait, that totally was yesterday, I have in no way shape or form grasped the layout of our shiny new building yet. This fall I’m taking: Corporations: because I […]

New Year, New Building

Summer is over, and the fall semester of the 2014-2015 academic year at BU Law has officially begun.  With it comes a new building that all law students get to enjoy. The Law Tower that many of us spent the past two years taking classes in is now closed for renovations, but I am happy […]

Before the First Bell Rings

The golden days of summer are almost over. I’ve finally seen why people look forward to this time of year: Instead of the endless 100-degree-plus Texas blazes that I’m used to, we got moderate temperatures and sunshine. The end of summer (and yes, it does end here, unlike the South’s “Autumn? What’s that?”) means the […]

The home stretch

In less than one month, I will be done with law school. 21 days, in fact. So, in this home stretch, I thought I would share a few closing thoughts – the first on making friends in law school. Making friends is both difficult and easy. In your first year, you are stuck with the […]

Rock Climbing at BU

In an interview, I was once asked how rock climbing has made me more prepared as a lawyer.  I have no idea what I said, and I really don’t like that question.  The truth is that, for me, rock climbing and the law represent two separate worlds, and that’s the way it should be.  Every […]

One Blurry Year

It has been quite the adventurous year for me! In 2013, I lived in rainy Seattle, battled the Atlanta summer heat , and started law school in Boston. I even saw my first real snow and helped my friends make snow angels for the first time. People aren’t kidding when they say days can just […]

Launching Into 2L Year

Around the first week of August my summer exploded into my second year of law school. I had been enjoying a quiet summer working as a Law Clerk for a two-attorney firm in Norwich, Vermont. I lived with my boyfriend Rob and our two dogs. I enjoyed working on substantive Trusts & Estates and Real […]

Intro to Year Two

Yesterday morning I noticed a few yellow leaves around the base of the trees outside my apartment building. The chilly air reminded me of waiting for the school bus at my parent’s house back in New York. Summer is over and I’m starting my second year of law school – theoretically older and wiser, but […]

Gay? Fine by BU Law**

Law school is about inspiration. You may spend countless hours in the library, more hours in classes, probably more hours in meetings and other networking functions, but ultimately you need to find your own motivation to persevere. Last fall, I was fortunate enough to serve as Treasurer for BU Law’s LGBTQ group, OutLaw. OutLaw has […]
