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 […]

Scared to Death

Law school is often described by the phrase,  “First year they scare you to death, second year they work you to death, and third year they bore you to death.” While I can’t speak to the second or third year just yet, in my personal experiences with 1L year so far, I’ve found that while […]

Ski Trip

Law school is certainly difficult and we students spend many hours in the tower studying, but at the same time, BU Law does a great job at incorporating a number of fun extracurricular activities into the academic calendar. The first of those events occurred this past weekend during the MLK weekend ski trip to Sugarloaf […]

A Day in the (Follies) Life

Well, we’re back for the second semester and I’ve got to say – it has hit me like a tidal wave. But besides the sluggish feeling of trying to get back into the swing of things, I think we’re off to a pretty good start. The blog administrators have suggested that we bloggers give you […]

Reflections on Our First Exams Season

Yesterday was our first ever law school exam. I actually had a pretty great day. I came out of the exam feeling ok, then had lunch at the BU pub with some classmates before going home. Around 7pm, Rob came to visit me all the way down from New Hampshire. (He is seriously the best.) […]
