Finished my 1st week back in law school after a year hiatus for my master’s degree, and already I am feeling the familiar twangs of too much work, not enough time, and limited personal time. This year, I’m doing a number of things you’ll see me blogging about: (1) obviously classes (I’m taking...
I have been trying to post this blog for days now, but I just can't stop watching the Olympics! Tonight there has been lots of distance racing, including the marathon where the men ran 26.2 miles in just over 2 hrs. Wow. But, I digress from my blog title...So last year was all about trying to...
After a too-short, research-intensive summer, I began classes Monday feeling a little less than refreshed, recharged, and ready to go. The week has felt so long, I was convinced that Tuesday was already Thursday. I picked up more energy throughout the week as I reconnected with classmates I hadn’t...

As a legal services office, our mission is to serve people people who fall below the federal poverty line with legal...
I spend a lot of time in law school talking about classes and jobs, thinking about the same things. But those are not the things that make this law school special--our deep commitments to our friends and family define our community.Law school is amazing because it draws people into strong bonds...
University of Oregon isn’t just green because of our school colors…the Princeton Review has voted the University of Oregon one of the greenest universities in the country (and the only green university in Oregon!). Check it out:...
I had my first jury trial on Thursday. That experience will be one of the best of my life. I woke up at 5am, adrenaline pumping. I couldn't eat, couldn't sit still. All I could do was repeat the facts to myself over and over. I got to the office at 7am to make sure all my exhibits were ready and...
