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. If I don’t make law review, I am still pleased with myself for finding the inner strength to pull through at the end of a week in total isolation with the enormous packet of information-- shooting in the dark and hoping for something coherent, precise, and maybe special.  Law review competition has ended, and I am...

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. I can't wait...

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. Check out the sampling of pictures below and then visit the RWU Law Alumni Facebook album to see dozens more. Dean Logan Toasts the Class of 2010 The Class of...

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...

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.   RWUers with Associate Justice Alito The visit began with reserved seats in the Supreme Court to watch the arguments in two cases raising significant constitutional issues. The first, Christian...

Summer has just begun and here I am a week away from leaving to study in London for 5 weeks. I am extremely excited to spend 3 weeks learning in class at the Inner Temple about comparative law and British common law. I am even more excited for two weeks of interning under a barrister or judge, an opportunity most law students never get the opportunity to do. And interning at the Inner Temple is an experience only fellow RWU London students will ever know. I feel like I have finally come down off the Spring semester finals-high.  I enjoyed a relaxing Memorial Day...
