March 10th, 2010I really wanted to go to an Irish Lawyer’s networking event in Ferndale this Thursday (even though I’m not Irish at all) but it looks as though I won’t be able to anymore.  My oral arguments coach for the moot court competition coming up decided to hold practice on Thursday from 5-7.   Practice is much more important at this point than networking so I can’t gripe about it too much.  Today I will be spending a l...

March 8th, 2010Today has been a long but productive day.  A friend and I worked on analyzing a supply purchase agreement this morning at Caribou Coffee. After making a quick stop to the chiropractor we made it to school just in time for Lunch with a Lawyer.  We were fortunate enough to have Mr. Ven Johnson from Fieger, Fieger, Kenney, Johnson, & Giroux come in for our lunch today.  This lunch was the best in the series so far....

March 5th, 20101L Moot Court Competition On March 20th, every single 1L will be competing against each other in the school’s annual G. Mennen Williams Moot Court Competition.  We’ve essentially been preparing for this since the beginning of the semester.  Last year, as a prospective student, I came and watched one of the oral arguments and I highly recommend you do the same! Having watched last year, I have a good sense of how it is ru...

March 3rd, 2010I have quite the day ahead of me today.  The day starts off with Core Concepts which today we are discussing Accounting and Financing, (definitely not one of the most exciting topics in the world).  After class I have a meeting with my fellow 1L board members.  I wanted all of us to get together and discuss what, if any, plans we want to make for the rest of the year.  My second class of the day will be Contrac...

February 28th, 2010This week has been amazing. I had zero stress! I could sleep as long as I wanted, wake up and do anything my heart desired! I was able to babysit a few times to make a little extra cash since I’m not able to work anymore.  I was able to get some productive things done that I usually don’t have the time to do.  I don’t have much to share about today and I think that is an amazing thing to for once not have anything goi...

February 17th, 2010I’ve been meaning to write an entry about all of those “books to read before law school”.  I remember when I went to my first open house for law school; I had asked which books were the best to read beforehand.  The response I got was “don’t bother, they aren’t really helpful… just spend your summer relaxing.” Well, of course me being the overambitious/anxious person that I am completely ignored what this person told...

February 15th, 2010I had a fantastic weekend! It was Valentine’s Day! I had a delicious dinner, went shopping, and saw the movie Wolfman, which by the way…I was not a fan- the movie wasn’t terrible but it was far from great. Now, I thought I’d share a play by play of my Monday: 6 am- rise and shine! 7-9 am- Property homework 9:20 am- Doctor’s appointment 10:45 am- early lunch 11:00-12 Contracts homework 12:45pm- Chiropractor appointment (a...

February 12th, 2010Better get buff before law school… I had been having some pain in my rib cage/chest/arm area for about 2 weeks; after my car accident it seemed to have gotten worse. I decided to get it checked out by a doctor, so I went and they took x-rays to make sure everything was okay and then the doctor asked me, “What do you do for a living? Do you carry/lift heavy things?” Of course, I let him know that I am a law student that carries...

February 10th, 2010This morning I woke up to a blizzard outside and although the majority of schools in the state were closed, UDM was up and running. Although only about half to 2/3 of my class showed up, I’m glad I attended because we flew through quite a bit of material today. This week we have our ALTA conferences to spend some one on one time with our professor to discuss the brief we are currently working on.  It’s really nice having ...

February 8th, 2010What a weekend! I just had the most amazing weekend! Friday night I went out for a friend’s birthday and Saturday was UDM’s Barrister’s Ball.  It was at the Westin Book Cadillac and I had an amazing time! Who wouldn’t have fun with dinner, dancing, and an open bar? Today the Saint won! I’m not a big football fan but my family is from New Orleans so it was a huge celebration for my house. Unfortunately, all good things must...
