Law Student Ambassadors

Persistence and Dedication

Phew! A new year and a new semester is upon us. For the last week or so I’ve been hearing the same phrase over and over again: New year, new me. While this saying might provide inspiration for some and help them to accomplish those pesky resolutions, it isn’t going to be my motto as […]

Reflections on Break

Winter break is for many law students, a breath of fresh air. Fall semester, like any in law school, is demanding. Between outlining, preparing for classes, clinics, pro bono hours, and more, the pace is almost unrelenting. So when we are given three weeks off, it’s understandable that we don’t want to think about work […]

You Are More Than an LSAT Score

The moment had finally arrived. I sat in the University of Idaho undergraduate library, looking at my computer screen, with a blank stare on my face. There on the screen in front of me was the email I had been anxiously waiting for months to receive – the results of my LSAT test were just […]

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 […]

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. I remember the long hours filling out applications to law schools and providing all the correct transcripts and forms. There was great excitement with the acceptance […]

When in law school, don’t neglect yourself!

Hello again! Spring has sprung here in Moscow: the sun is finally out, the snowdrops are blooming, and daffodils are soon to follow. For law students, all of these things mean one thing: spring break has passed and graduation is just weeks away. For many third year students this instills and generates both a sense […]

Why?!?!?!

For those who want to become lawyers, those in law school, and those practicing law, life is full of questions. The one that I speak of and have encountered many times, prior to law school, in law school, and during an externship I had this past summer, is why. Why would you want to become […]

Turning a Quarter Century

Last week, I turned 25. Three years ago to the day, I was sitting in a Starbucks in London (maybe using them for their WiFi and drinking the free refills on tea…) checking my email. I had applied to the University of Idaho prior to leaving to study abroad, and I checked my email several […]

Competition in my life as a “2L”

Hey guys! A great part of my second year of law school just got finished! I had the opportunity to participate in the 25th Annual McNichols Appellate Advocacy Program. What does that mean??? McNichols is our school’s intramural moot court competition. We learn about appellate advocacy, write a brief, and then have a chance to argue both on […]

Getting involved with student clubs

Hi, prospective UI Law Vandals! I’m Hannah, a 2L and a Natural Resources and Environmental Law Emphasis student. I wanted to briefly tell you about my involvement with the Environmental Law Society, one of the many clubs associated with the law school.   I serve as the Environmental Law Society’s club secretary. Through this position, I […]
