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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Team Me

I am a workaholic. I know that about myself. I tend to dedicate full force to whatever it is I have committed myself. I tend to neglect my physical, emotional, and mental health. Last year, I stressed too much about school and pushed myself harder than ever to improve my grades. By the end of […]

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 […]
