We are a week away from finals and just finished registering for classes, its this time of year more than others that everyone has a tip for you and your success. There are plenty of theories about which classes to take, how best to study, and the best ways to ensure you pass the bar the first time around.

This past weekend a group of 2L honors students had the opportunity to take a trip to Washington DC. As part of the US Supreme Court Cases class we attended arguments at the Supreme Court, met with Justice Alito and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, and toured the Capital building. We prepared for the trip by reading the briefs for Travelers Indemnity Co. v. Bailey and then hearing about the finer points of this bankruptcy case from Professor Chung.
