59 Days

59 days, 42 weekdays. I know that at this point in the semester, everyone is crazed and it is hard for most of us to see the light at the end of the tunnel. March is coming to a close though, and in just a few weeks we will all be able to relax as […]


Boy, this has been the longest winter that I have lived through in a long time. This Friday, April 1st, we are supp. to get hit with approx. another foot of snow as well! Anyways, these are some of the things that I have learned about living in the cold this year: 1) Wear heat […]

Legal Arguements

Last week, I completed my second Criminal Procedure & Practice argument.  The first argument I felt like I bombed it!  I was very nervous, stuttering, and couldn’t focus.  However, this time I felt like I knew every part of my argument, responded to the judges in a respectful and thoughtful manner, and felt that I […]

Everyone is sick . . .

but won’t stay home!  Carry around some hand sanitizer if you think you want to step foot on a law school campus, folks!

Court Experience

Working at the South Royalton Legal Clinic is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made as part of my legal education.  Prior to being a student clinician, I didn’t have actual in-court experience nor did I have experience working with clients on a regular basis.  The Legal Clinic has taught me through an intensive in-class training […]

sleeping in . . .

. . . until 9:30! I have fallen out of my habit of getting up early, and currently struggle to find the will to start my day.  It doesn’t help that I have no early classes this semester.  I try to make my appointments early so I have the motivation of not wasting someone else’s […]

Student In Service Interview

The decisive moment of the Student In Service Award is fast approaching and I hope all of you will cast your final votes soon. Most of us at Vermont Law School know that one does not engage in public service with the hope of winning awards, but for giving back to our communities, rectifying a […]

Spring Break in South Royalton

That’s right folks, I am living large in this sleepy town, which is even more drowsy with 80% of the student population gone. Some people go to a warm, sunny place to get away from Vermont’s marathon winters.  But some of us can’t get enough!  I for one love getting my car stuck in back […]

Spring Break

Wow…it’s been a little while.  This semester is fantastic!  I couldn’t ask for a better set of practical coursework.  I’m taking nonprofit law, criminal procedure and practice, advanced legal analysis, and the South Royalton Legal Clinic.  So far in my legal career, I focused quite a bit on environmental law courses.  But, this semester I wanted […]

International Women’s Day!

When Camara Laye wrote this poem, he was studying abroad in Paris, faraway from Guinea where he was born.  When I read it in high school in Freetown, I didn’t really feel the sentiments he was expressing.  Though my mother, like his, was living in Guinea; it was just a stone-throw away from Sierra Leone.  […]
