Love & Law School

Friendships are incredibly important to your life balance and ultimate happiness. This notion is even more crucial in school and, in my honest opinion, more-so in graduate school – where you’re testing the very limits of your own capacity to achieve and persevere. [Translation: Law school is hard, yo.] Law school is an institution that can cultivate deep, long-lasting relationships; law school will break you down. Everyone gets brain fatigue….

5 Tips for a Great Study Space

  Sometimes [ok, more often than I care to count] I find myself procrastinating. I think we all do it, from time to time.
