London Calling!

Posted by Jolee Messier on 06/22/2010 at 12:09 PM

I finally have internet access to post a blog- hooray!  I have so much to write about the past week and a half so here it goes...  I arrived in London last Sunday.  It was quite difficult getting from the airport to our dorm on the tube because I had so much luggage and there were way too many stairs on the London Underground!  I was so grateful to finally make it to our dorm at Ramsay Hall of the University College London.  Our dorm is on a busy street in the center of London with lots of restaurants and shops.  We all have single rooms, which is pretty nice.

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).

End of Year Festivities - Vol. 2

Posted by David Logan on 06/14/2010 at 12:00 AM

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.
