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. ...

I set out on a narrow way, many years ago...

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...

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...
