Springtime on the Palouse

One of the great things about attending the U of I College of Law is that you get the chance spend springtime on the Palouse. Today, the weather is absolutely beautiful-blue skies, sun shining, flowers blossoming, and the fields are green. The lilac bushes are blooming, and smell wonderful. Sure, the weather here can sometimes […]

Home away from Home: How the Carrel System at the University of Idaho Sets Every Student Up for Success

Many of your professors will tell you that Law in a noble profession, which is a very true statement. However, no one tells you this piece of truth: the day-to-day life of a law student does not feel noble. No one gets enough sleep, everyone is struggling to stay mentally and physically healthy, and not […]

Make the most of today

I am anxious to start my 3L year of law school, because when I close my eyes and concentrate really hard, I can almost feel my law degree in my hands.  I can’t wait until graduation!  Just two little semesters stand between me and my J.D.  But I have to remind myself of something that […]

The Honor of Law School

There have been many milestones in the path of law school so far and still more to come. I remember the work I put in to taking the LSAT.

My Family and I

Howdy y’all, this is Nii-Amaa, also known as Nii. I wanted to share my awesome experiences with the wonderful people here at the University of Idaho College of Law. Richard Bach once stated “The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” For […]

New Beginnings

I love January!  It is not because I am an avid fan of winter sports.  In fact, the one and only time I went skiing I ended up with more sore muscles than I knew I had.  The real reason I like January is because it is the beginning of a year of possibilities just […]

Finishing Strong

The leaves have fallen, the first snow has come, the sun now sets at 5:00 p.m., and the semester is winding down. This time of year can send an average law student into a whirlwind of emotions. Many students are able to breathe a temporary sigh of relief over Thanksgiving break and remember what it […]
