September 26th, 2010Don’t you hate those Sundays where you think to yourself “I can’t wait for the weekend”? Yeah, this is one of those days; I feel like I never quite got my weekend.  My big task for the weekend is doing research to come up with a topic for my law review piece. Sounds easy enough, right? Not really…I’m basically supposed to come up with a novel, legal question (which I kind of have to have done by 6pm tonight…), and then I...

September 19th, 2010Today was a pretty bland day.  This morning, I went to church and brunch with my mom, and then the rest of the day was spent being productive. I had to work on my research assignment for my advanced advocacy class and get that submitted by 5pm. After that, I did some cleaning (it’s as though my possessions just multiply when I’m not looking and then conspire to take over my bedroom and office!), and now I’m taking a brea...

September 18th, 2010When I tell people that I only have class three days a week, they conjure up images of a life of leisure…which couldn’t be further from the truth.  This week was a stressful week. I had the usual amount of reading this week plus interviews; this in and of itself is stressful. Add to that the fact that people seem to have forgotten how to drive this week, which means that I was dealing with heavy traffic all week for seem...

September 8th, 2010Is it Friday yet?  I wish I could say that I had a relaxing holiday weekend, but honestly, it involved a lot of homework. I did get the chance to meet up with some friends, and I did take a trip to the cider mill, so it wasn’t a bad weekend, just not the break I was looking for.  Today, I had my ADR class bright and early at 9am. Then, I usually have evidence immediately following that class, but it was cancelled to...

September 2nd, 2010What a week.  I’m sure most of you have heard the old adage about law school, “The first year, they scare you to death. The second year, they work you to death. The third year, they bore you to death.” Well, let’s just say that I’m seeing where the working to death comes in…  This year, I only have class three days a week (M/T/Th), and I have three day weekends. Sounds nice, huh? I’m working harder than I think...

August 31st, 2010I hope the school year is starting off well for everyone.   This semester, I have an interesting course load. On Mondays, I have Advanced Advocacy, an upper-level writing course required for students on moot court. Tuesdays are my crazy busy days with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), Evidence, and Criminal Procedure; I have class 9-4pm, with a break from 1 to 2. Thursdays are pretty similar, but I only have Eviden...

August 20th, 2010Greetings again.  Today was an interesting sort of day. This morning, I attended the UDM Law Review orientation. I’m not sure how much you all know about law review, but I guess it’s kind of a big deal. (And I say that in the most humble way possible…) Basically, law review is a student-run organization that publishes a “law review.” Faculty members and other important people write articles for the law review, and the membe...

August 19th, 2010Welcome, welcome new 1Ls!  It has been such a busy week…and school hasn’t even started yet!  I have really enjoyed getting to meet so many of you this week at the organization fair, and as part of our all-new mentoring program! If you see me around, you won’t be bothering me if you stop and say “hello” and introduce yourself.  In addition to it being orientation week, it is also the first week of on-campus inter...

August 7th, 2010It was so nice getting to welcome so many of you to the school at our Welcome Day on Friday!  The end of my summer “vacation”  is quickly approaching. This upcoming week is the last week at my externship, which I know I’m really going to miss. Remember how I wrote that response to a motion a couple weeks ago? On Thursday, the attorney that I have been working with argued my response in court, and the judge ruled in our ...

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...
