I am starting at Vermont Law this fall, hoping to obtain a joint degree (J.D./MELP) in 3 years.


I am in the process of determining which is worse (1) taking the bar exam or (2) waiting for the bar exam results.  After the bar exam was over it was so easy to not think about it.  The months of constant studying followed by the exam gave way to relief that you were free.  […]


On Monday I had the honor of attending the first day of the Vermont Yankee trial in Brattleboro, Vermont.  I car-pooled with Professors Parenteau and Hanna and used the opportunity to speak with them about my job search and they provided a lot of helpful advice.  It was also interesting to hear their opinions about […]

Revive Royalton

Although it has been less than a week since Tropical Storm Irene swept through Vermont, it seems like a month.   I’ve counted my blessings every day that we only had a few inches of water in the basement.  We were packed to evacuate on Sunday and kept watching the river creep closer to the road […]

Making Strides

It has been a few months since my last blog.  Since the last time I wrote I have graduated law school and taken the Vermont Bar Exam.  Studying for the bar exam was one of the hardest times of my life.  My life revolved around studying, I became incapable of having a conversation that did […]

1 Week

1 more week exactly until my law school graduation!  It is surreal that these last 3 years went by so fast.  Last week I found both my dress and shoes for graduation.   If there is any excuse to treat yourself, it is definitely your law school graduation!  I can’t wait until my family comes […]


Last exam is done!  Tomorrow I will hand in my final law school exam and might feel the need to do a cartwheel in the middle of the office.  Luckily enough, my husband has Tuesday and Wednesday off so we can spend some much needed time together.  Making a marriage work through law school is […]

Exams and Rain

I was correct in guessing that my brain would be mush after two in class 4-hour exams.  Although I had 24 hours in between my Estates and Income Taxation exams, it was definitely a draining two days.  The time leading up to the exam drags by, once the exam starts, the 4 hours fly by.  […]

Wrapping Up

Two classes done, three to go!  The last few days have been filled with reading, outlining, and taking practice tests.  I have one more day of studying and then my exams begin.  Wednesday and Thrusday I have in class exams and I have a take home to complete by next Wednesday.  I hope to get […]

Last Day

Today is the last day of my law school career.  I am happy, sad, and scared out of my mind.  I am happy because I am ready to move on from this period of life and enter the working world.  I am sad because I have to say good bye to a lot of great […]


3 more days of classes left!  Today I had my final Advanced Skills for Practice class.  It made me sad when I realized that this week will be filled with final classes.  I have been in school almost continuously since I began kindergarten, and the next few months will be huge changes for me.   […]
