Reflections on an amazing weekend

Posted by Kevin Olasanoye on 06/20/2010 at 07:50 PM

I just finished an amazing weekend in London (except for the weather) and decided it would be a good time to update you all on what’s been going on. I got a chance to go to the London Eye, which is basically a huge ferris wheel in the center of London. It goes about 400 yards above sea level and gives you a wonderful view of Central London. From the very top, you can see Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace (no, I did not see the Queen), Big Ben, and Parliament.

I have been in London now for a week and have had quite the adventure thus far. On the flight from Boston, I sat next to a musician who was travelling on business. As we started chatting, we discovered that we both lived in Providence and had a mutual friend who is also a 2L at RWU Law (it really is a small world).

In addition to feting the graduates at Glen Manor, we also salute the end of the year for our 1Ls, exactly 8 months, 25 days, and 20 hours after their journey into the morass of the law began at Orientation.  We toasted their hard work and the construction of a strong platform for future academic and professional success.  Congratulations to the class of 2012!

My Summer in DC

The marathon of the first year of law school has come to an end.  The end of the year was a test of endurance and focus, with a five-hour property exam and the law review competition immediately after our torts final, at a time when continuing onward seemed impossible.

London Bound

Posted by Jolee Messier on 06/09/2010 at 01:48 PM

I can't believe that I leave for London in 3 days!  I started packing last night and it is definitely turning out to be a challenge.  We have to bring 3 weeks worth of suits--thank goodness for Burlington Coat Factory and their fabulously priced suits!  I have never been to London before so I am so excited to explore a new place.  I had a wonderful experience in undergrad studying in Salamanca, Spain for a semester and I am sure that the London program will not disappoint!  I am also planning on going to Paris during the program for a long weekend.

End of Year Festivities - Vol. 1

At Roger Williams Law, we celebrate the successful end of the academic year with two signature events (in addition to Commencement), none better than the fancy/schmancy reception held for the graduates at the beautiful Glen Manor House (actually it is a mansion on the water) on the eve of Commencement. Faculty, staff, and even a few alums join in this festive evening, enjoying terrific food and drink in a drop-dead beautiful setting.

4 Days Away...

I can’t believe it is already time to go to London. Where has all the time gone? Let’s see…after a very long semester, I decided to enter the Law Review Competition. Then I decided to take some much needed “me” time. I blew the dust off the Playstation 3 (I highly recommend Super Street Fighter), attended my brother’s graduation from URI (way to go baby bro!), and finally returned all the phone calls, emails, texts, and other messages I hadn’t gotten to because of the dreaded appellate brief and finals.

An Insider's Tour of "Legal Washington"

Posted by David Logan on 06/03/2010 at 12:09 PM

On March 18 and 19, seventeen second year Honors Program students were given an insider’s view of litigation in The Highest Court in the Land—the Supreme Court of the United States.  The trip to Washington, D.C. was the culmination of a six week “perspectives course” on the Supreme Court taught by Prof. Diana Hassel, who was joined on the whirlwind trip by DC insider Prof. Jared Goldstein.
