The best laid plans of mice and men.....well you likely know the rest. Unfortunately my plan to continue blogging during the bar hit a few road blocks of its’ own. My plan for this post is to basically walk you through my study period, give you some general information on the bar process and address some of the pros and cons of writing in two jurisdictions. I also apologize in advance if this post has more typo's and spelling issues than normal. ...

Two weeks past my technical last day and I suppose you’d expect me to be all relaxed and enjoying that everything is over and done. Unfortunately that’s not quite the case. While the end of classes marks one part of the process life as a law student doesn’t quite end when the classroom part does. Knowing the bar exams and job search aren’t over yet also makes it difficult to feel the normal elation of finishing a degree. Unlike many students I d...

It’s pouring rain outside and yet today is one of the most beautiful days I’ve ever seen. The last week or two have been filled with many challenges and horrible events. Multiple bombings, 3 large magnitude earthquakes and more attempted terrorist plots. I’ve even had a few hiccups of my own with my building sewer attempting to explode (not actually but it wasn’t fun), 2 papers, 2 exams, class clothing orders coming in wrong, and co-running our D...

The past week has flown by and the last week of classes is upon us. One of the most common questions I get asked about the program is how we go to both schools at once, so for today here’s some insight into how the calendars from the two schools merge. For the Fall Semester UDM starts classes mid-August while Windsor starts following Labour Day two weeks later. As a result UDM typically goes into exams about one week earlier, but this normally o...

One of the unique aspects of UDM is that it is a Jesuit university. When Detroit College opened in 1877 it was run by the Society of Jesus. The Law school was established in 1812 making this our school’s centennial year. In 1920 Detroit College became the University of Detroit and retained its Jesuit roots. Then in 1990 the University merged with the Mercy College of Detroit run by the Sisters of Mercy, an Irish Catholic Order. This created what ...

Because you only graduate law school twice.

One month from now it will all be over. No more classes, no more books and no more teacher’s dirty looks as the rhyme goes. Unfortunately that month involves 2 essays, a drafting assignment, a short memo, a short problem and 2 tests. While it sounds daunting it shouldn’t actual be too bad. I also finally get to go home this week (I haven’t been since Christmas vacation) so it will be great to get to see everyone, spend time at the cottage and get...

After such a busy start to the semester (or really first half of the semester) I feel like I’m finally settling back into the normal swing and sway of law school. Last week involved 2 smaller assignments, meeting with a professor about one of my midterms and generally just getting myself sorted out for the rest of the semester; nothing huge or phenomenal but a successful week nonetheless. I was also lucky in that a friend of mine took advantage ...

It's Just a Step to the Left....

Well the last two weeks have definitely been a whirlwind. Last weekend featured both the Niagara International Moot and UDM’s annual Barrister’s Ball. After a rocky start on my way to Toronto (who knew there were two Intercontinental Hotels in downtown?), the weekend went pretty smoothly. The competition kicked off on Friday with 4 rounds per team. Our team did well and gathered strength throughout the day. Unfortunately we got out argued by som...

74 days to graduation. The semester is flying by and this past month has been no exception. Our Memorial went in for the Niagara Moot and we’ve been heavily into practicing. I made it through midterms and even managed to escape for a lovely sun vacation with a good friend over reading week. I’m writing more job applications, organizing our year end Dual JD graduation event and working on launching our next moot committee project on the Canadian s...

Well I’m really glad I didn’t sign up for more credits. The first 2 weeks of the semester were busy! My classes are off to a good start. I have a variety of really interesting professors who know their subject area really well. Best of all they all enjoy teaching and working with students. In addition to this SBA (Student Bar Association) activities are kicking off for the semester and I’ve joined a local ski league. Lastly the memorials (submiss...
