                After a much-needed Thanksgiving break, the scene at RWU Law changed drastically. Final exams were right around the corner, a seemingly-terrifying, unique experience for us as 1Ls. The weeks began to fly by, juggling the last class assignments, editing and reviewing outlines, and reviewing outline, on top of any other responsibilities make it seem like entering final exams is like entering a giant whirlpool – a semester’s worth of work swirling around you over the two-week exam period, and ending in an...

Like I’m sure most any 1L experiences before coming to law school, I had my worries on arriving at RWU Law. But looking back on my first month, I’m so glad that I made the decision to attend Roger Williams, and law school in general. Between the people that I’m meeting, the lawyering skills that I’m learning, and the new things in town that I’m trying, I don’t think that I could be in a better place right now. Moving to Bristol this past summer was a huge leap for me. It was the first time I had moved from my childhood home. Granted, home is only an hour and a half away, I was wicked excited...
