“Do My Shoes Match?” and Other Thoughts from 2L Year

Hello everyone!  This is my first post as a BU Law blogger, and I am super excited to be joining the team this semester.  I wanted to post a quick introductory post to let everyone know a little bit about my commitments so far as a 2L.  The short version is that I have a lot of […]

The Proverbial Gorilla in the Room

In 1L year, my philosophy was “try everything and see what sticks.” Problem was, nearly everything stuck. I liked so many of the things I tried, I was fated to have that incredibly busy 2L year I swore I wouldn’t have. One activity I promised myself wasn’t so great, to the point where I swore […]

Moot Court Fears

The Socratic method can be a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing when you have lively discussion and listen to people ask questions you may also have but are too scared to articulate or cannot even form words coherently to ask. The curse is when you freeze up with anxiety or you have […]

Making the Case

When I toured BU (in 2009!) my tour guide took us by the Stone Moot Courtroom. All first year students, she explained, have to do moot court, where you write a brief on a fake set of facts and then argue in front of professors, lawyers, and judges while they pepper you with questions. I […]

Learning Outside of the Classroom: Judicial Externship Program

Moot Court: Patents and Antitrust and Feedback (Oh My)

I have now spent fifteen minutes haranguing on about a per se illegality rule as applied to reverse payment settlement agreements. Seriously. Reverse payment settlement agreements. Sounds unbearably dull, admittedly. But actually, in what I assume is some form of Stockholm Syndrom, I’m finding it pretty interesting. Idea is this: brand-name drug company puts out Drug A. […]

Team: Together Everyone Achieves More

Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday. Sadly, the New England Patriots won’t be inside the Superdome this year.  With football coming to an end and baseball starting in a few months, what’s a sports fan to do? Thankfully, Boston has plenty of sports teams to go around. Lately I’ve been catching all of the Celtics and […]
