Hello Christmas Vacation!!   After a stressful past week (and let’s be real here, a stressful semester…), I have finally finalized the finale of my finals!! We won’t get our grades for another probably six weeks or so (you figure there are some classes of 70+ students, all-essay exams, each student writes 6-8 typed pages…), so now I’m just trying to stop the worrying about how this past semester went, and focus on relaxing and having some ...

Almost there! Ten more days until I’m done for the semester!!   I have a pretty funky final exam schedule this semester. I have three exams, and the first one isn’t until Thursday of the first final exam week. Then I have exams the following Tuesday and Wednesday. And then I’m done. Why is this a funky schedule? Because I had classes Monday and Tuesday of this past week, my clinic on Wednesday…and then I had the rest of the week off. Plus ...

Happy Thanksgiving!!   Wow, what a crazy month! November has been very hectic, but there have been a lot of exciting things going on at the law school!   I serve as a Presidential Ambassador for the University, which gives me the opportunity to represent the students at alumni events. (The interesting part is that I am an alumna of the University, even though I’m also a current student…) The Alumni Reunion Weekend was the last weeke...

Yikes. I’m sorry that my posts have been so sparse this semester! I guess I’ve just been a little busy…I know you are all dying to hear about my classes this semester, so I thought I would start with Pretrial Litigation: my first ever LFP.   My pretrial litigation class follows an employment sexual harassment claim from the very beginning, the initial client interview, all the way to a pretrial motion to exclude evidence.   The clas...

Wow, where did August go…?  So we’ve been back to school for almost four weeks now, but it feels like we just started! I think I can blame it on the fact that I’ve just been super busy. In addition to my Law Review work, and my “big girl job” search, I am also taking five classes.   Here is what my schedule looks like this semester: Monday: Business Crimes 6-8pm Tuesday: Pre-Trial Litigation 1:30-4:15pm, Professional Responsibi...

Law Review.  I realized that I’ve been talking a lot about Law Review, and “editing”…and I realized that I haven’t said that much about what it’s actually all about. Rather than talk more about how much I love my internship, I thought I would give you a little insight into this particular facet of my law-school life.  Law Review is, first and foremost, a publication. We publish articles that analyze new laws, discuss the implications ...

June 11th, 2011Summer is in full swing!  I’ve been doing a lot of Law Review this summer. Between reading article submissions, grading write-on competition pieces, and editing articles, it’s basically been like a full-time job. Fortunately, the work is enjoyable enough, and everything is so varied, so it has been pretty painless.  In addition to the full-time job that is Law Review, I’ve also begun interning full time at the federal c...

April 29th, 2011I have a lot going on, so no long posts for awhile, but here are a few thoughts for the day:  1. I have officially decided that I prefer in-class examinations to take-homes. For me I guess the pressure of sitting there and having to bust out a couple brilliant essays in a matter of three hours is preferable to getting forty eight hours to work on something that would probably only take three hours if I would just stay focuse...

April 27th, 2011I guess this is supposed to be final exam crunch time, so why do I feel so relaxed?  This semester I have three final exams. My final for Criminal Law is a two-part: we had a short, multiple-choice style exam in class last Thursday (the types of questions that we will encounter on the multi-state section of the Bar exam). We got the scores for those today, and I was pretty pleased with my results. Now, I just have a take-hom...

April 16th, 2011Time flies when you’re in law school.  Next week is the last full week of classes, and all of us are left asking ourselves “where has the time gone?!” I thought things would be less busy once I made it through March, but that’s proving to be an incorrect presumption: I’m busier than ever!  Last night, I joined my fellow Moot Court Board members for our end-of-the year banquet. It was a great opportunity for all of us t...
