August 3rd, 2010Umm, so I guess it’s already August?!  Classes start three weeks from yesterday, and I have just one question: where has my summer gone? I had such plans for this summer, a “to do” list a mile long with all of the things that I had been putting off during the school year, and with few exceptions, most of the items on my list are incomplete. Now getting close to panic mode, I’m making a concerted effort in these last few week...

July 30th, 2010Wow! What a crazy couple of weeks!  Right after I was finished dealing with the stress of applying for OCI, I had to register for my fall classes. I made the decision to commit to both law review and moot court for the upcoming year, so it took some effort on my part to make sure that I was taking a well-balanced course load. One of the best features of UDM is the faculty; many faculty members came in for two different facult...

July 8th, 2010Hello all, I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend. Mine was pretty uneventful…barbeque with friends, trip to the lake, and babysitting. Not bad. Last week was a pretty cool week at my externship. On Thursday, I went to Hamtramck to observe a hearing for the public integrity case I was working on. It was the first time I got to do the leg work on a case and then see how it played out in court, so it felt very exciting. After the...

June 29th, 2010So maybe I’m not updating as often as I would like…just a symptom of a busy summer. This last week was a pretty insane week. On Tuesday, the rest of our grades were posted, and I was excited to find out that I did much better than I expected. Of course that was cause for celebration…I felt as though getting my final grades made this whole last year of hard work worth it. Then I had my externship Wednesday through Friday. The atto...

June 22nd, 2010I hope you all have been enjoying the summer weather!I certainly have been enjoying all of my free time (and even my not so free time…) this summer. Since I last updated, I took a trip to Florida with my family, did a lot of work around the house, spent time with friends, and started my externship at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.Right now, I know the biggest stressor for all of us “rising 2Ls” is the fact that we’re still w...

May 24th, 2010It is absolutely beautiful outside today, and here I am working on my law review competition piece at the excessively air-conditioned public library. Yesterday, I somehow convinced myself that it would be very productive if I worked on my memo while sitting outside and working on my tan. Yeah, I think the actual “work” part of that lasted a whole ten minutes…so now I’m paying for it today.If you are not interested in hearing a perso...

May 20th, 2010Wow, it has certainly been awhile since I’ve last updated.I wish I could say that I’ve been able to easily return to my before-law-school routine, but it has been kind of slow going. The good news is that I seem to be getting more productive as the days go on.This week, the “problem” for the law review write-on competition was released. They provided us with a set of facts and four cases and we are to write a six page memo evaluatin...

May 10th, 2010Hello all,So, that’s that. The school year has ended and we are all left another year wiser.After our final exam on Tuesday, most of the 1Ls headed over to the Detroiter for a “post-exams happy hour” and then our groups all went their separate ways. My friends and I did some partying thatevening…and then the post-exam laziness seemed to hit. (To put things into perspective: the day of our civpro final, I showed up to school having s...

May 3rd, 2010I have to be up in about 12 hours…to take my last exam of the year! (Yes, this means that it is about 6pm on Monday and I will be getting up at 6am tomorrow. I am paranoid about being late for my final exams, so I have been giving myself two hours for the usual thirty minute drive in the mornings…)For the past couple days, I’ve been studying civil procedure. Maybe not as much as I would have liked on Friday and Saturday, but Sunday I...

April 29th, 2010Well, I have two finals down and only one more to go.Right now, I find myself in the eye of the storm. I had a final examon Tuesday, an externship meeting (basically about the requirements for getting course credit, and how to get the most out of our experience) and plenty of studying yesterday, and then a final again today. I’m so physically and mentally (and emotionally at this point…) drained. I have decided that no real studyi...
