April 16th, 2010Well, elections are finally over. Unfortunately, my running mate did not win, but I am excited to work with the newly elected VP Faiza Mohktar!  Next week we have a last meeting for the current board and the new board will be introduced for next year.  One thing I am excited about in the fall is meeting the incoming 1Ls and find out who will be on the new 1L board! This weekend is crazy busy from morning until night! Fi...

April 14th, 2010Last week of classes! It’s hard to believe that classes are finishing up and finals are quickly arriving! Yesterday, the class officer elections took place and I’d like to congratulation Mike Staude, Andrea Faes, Danielle Strace, Mike Davidson, and Stefani Silverstein on being elected to various positions on the 2L board.  I ran for President with my friend John Price as my VP.  I was elected as President but John has t...

April 9th, 2010It’s Friday! For Lent, I had given up pizza which just about killed me.  Not only did I miss out on my favorite food for 40 days, I missed out on free food! At the law school, almost every event you go to comes with free food (and it’s usually pizza). To celebrate my introduction back into the pizza world I’m going to eat at Pizza Papalis today.  For those of you who haven’t been yet, it’s PIZZA HEAVEN!  The electi...

April 7th, 2010I realized that every week I sing the same song “this week is just crazy, I don’t have time for anything, I’m sleep deprived, I’m stressed…blah blah blah”; even I’m getting sick of hearing myself! I want say Congratulations to Nick Hawatmeh (a fellow blogger) on becoming our new SBA President!! Now that the executive positions have been filled, the class elections are now taking place.  I am currently the 1L President and I’v...

March 31st, 2010Happy Birthday to me! Yesterday, I decided to try out a new study locale upon recommendation from a fellow law student.  Although this place is only a ½ mile from my house and open 24 hours, I’ve never thought to go there before.  Well, I know it doesn’t seem like something to get excited about, but I’m super excited about it! I absolutely loved it! They have great coffee and it’s quiet with people studying.  I hav...

March 30th, 2010E-Board Election Day! Today is Election Day for the executive position of the SBA.  The candidates have gone above and beyond what you can imagine.  They’re giving so many free things away it is unbelievable!  I’ve seen today: free bagels, ice cream bar, gum, water bottles, chips, coffee, candies, sticky notes, highlighters, stickers, t shirts, and that is just the beginning! I worked the voting table for an hour t...

March 26th, 2010Yesterday, in ALTA we had a “client”  come in and our class worked as a “law firm” and interviewed this client.  It was a fun experience; afterwards, Professor Weissman went through the things we did well and things we need to work on.  Now we are in the works of drafting two contracts for this client.  This will be the first contract I draft; although not the most exciting thing I’ll do all year, I’m look...

March 25th, 2010I know it’s been a few days… Let me go back a few days and share all of the exciting things that have been going on.  As you remember from my last entry, the 1L G. Mennens Moot Court Competition was this past Saturday.  We had to check in at 8am and received a complimentary breakfast.  Arguments started at 9am and I was the second round which started at 9:35am.  I represented the United States and my opposing ...

March 19th, 2010Well my sickness has fully taken over me.  :( I need to feel better because tomorrow is the 1L Moot Court Competition!  I cannot explain in words how badly I need to spend a day in bed… On a more exciting note, I’ve decided where I will be spending my summer- @ the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office.  I’ll be working in the Trials Division Domestic Violence Unit and I couldn’t be more excited!  I am ecstatic to ...

March 17th, 2010Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ve been fighting off some sort of sickness but I think the sickness is winning :(. Maybe if I could squeeze in a nap I’d feel a little bit better, but I won’t be home until very late tonight.  Our Moot court competition is in 3 days; I definitely cannot afford to be sick! In preparation for the oral arguments this weekend we have been assigned a coach to have around 10 hours worth of practice in gr...
