Friday was the last day of the London program and I thought it would be useful to leave you all with some of my concluding thoughts. As I have already mentioned, I never had the opportunity to study abroad when I was in my undergrad. So when I heard that RWU had a study abroad program in London back in January, I knew this was where I would be spending part of my summer. And boy am I glad I had the chance to visit! Aside from having the opportunity to do some travelling and relaxation (which I have to tell you was a whole lot of fun), the pupilage period and classes were a treat. In five...

This past weekend was the last long weekend before I head back home and I did not want to waste it. So me and a couple of RWU Londoners jumped on a plane and went to Madrid. I had such an amazing time that I decided to dedicate the bulk of this entry to what I saw, heard, and experienced. Here goes… We landed on Thurdsay night and decided to go into the city to do some exploring. Luckily for us, Madrid has a Metro system much like the one in London (although, unlike our British friends, the Spanish were good enough to install air conditioning in their underground trains. You have no idea how...

Yep, that’s right. Since we’re all Irish on St. Patrick’s Day (even President O’Bama wore a green tie and welcomed the Irish delegation a couple years ago), I could think of no better reward for having sat with a judge and a few barristers then heading over to Dublin for a weekend of jollification (I am attempting to use as many British colloquialisms as I can. This one means fun). Man, it was a crazy town! The Temple Inn is a hotbed of nightlife that has a flavor for everyone. I have never seen so many people drinking out on the streets at night time before. My cousin (yes, I have family...

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. Maybe the coolest part of the whole experience was the 4D movie we saw after buying our tickets (much better than the MTV...

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). I then had the chance to visit with some family who live in the suburbs of London and get myself acclimated to life across the pond (for example, young people here wear their polo shirts with the collar up all the time and you have to look right when you cross the street because...

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. I can’t even really put my excitement about this London trip into words. During my...
