Normally people hear the phrase “bending the rules” and think of skirting a process or going outside the lines. In the world of administrative law, though, bending the rules is part of the process.

As part of his Land Use Regulation course, Professor Roderick M. Hills, Jr. requires all students to attend a land use hearing and write a memo on the experience. Attending a hearing, as it turned out, was one of the most interesting experiences I’ve had so far in law school.

Here are some of the insights I’ve gleaned from hours and hours on our course selection website.

I must’ve walked past the chandelier in the lobby of Vanderbilt a hundred times before I looked at it properly.

I don’t know quite how to describe what I imagined when I envisioned what a Supreme Court justice would look or sound like.

Being a teaching assistant at NYU Law is a great way to help develop and nurture our community while sharpening your own skills, too.

As a teaching assistant, I have the chance to get to know not only two professors, but also classmates outside of my year.

I was correct to be “clinically” excited for 3L year, as my experience in NYU’s Business Law Transactions Clinic has been even more fulfilling than I anticipated!

There is a whole other legal education available to us outside of the classroom that can be just as, or even more, valuable.

Getting to know professors personally your 1L year can be challenging. Enter the 1L Reading Group.

For my last post as an NYU Law student, I decided not to talk about graduation but rather the things I wish I had done here during my LLM studies.

At a public meeting in Greenberg Lounge two weeks ago, I saw Professor Samuel Estreicher, who teaches employment law and appellate advocacy here at NYU, defend his position that students should be allowed to sit for the bar after two years of law school and to have the option of walking with a certificate, rather than a J.D.

Most 1Ls, by May, look forward to putting the law library behind them. For research assistants, however, the library soon becomes a second home. Here’s what I thought about my summer pretending to be a law professor in NYU’s research assistant program.

Law students must take a certain number of doctrinal classes to graduate, but otherwise, we have flexibility in selecting courses and creating our own schedules. Seminars, clinics, and simulation courses take law students outside the classroom setting and provide us with skills key to our future careers.

Although law schools have attempted to diversify their student bodies over the years, a recent study casts strong doubt as to the effectiveness of these initiatives with respect to socioeconomic diversity. I offer my perspective on the issue based on my realization that I am among the 5%.

Law and Economics is inescapable your 1L year. It is also perfectly understandable—even for arithmophobes like me.

I woke up this morning and realized that I am a law student. It’s official.

It is all too easy to retreat from life and forget who you were before law school. One student tells how she refused to succumb to the peer pressure of 24/7 studying.

I went out for a jog for a study break–and ended up having another kind of break. Having a supportive law school family has made all the difference as I get back into the swing of things.

I am taking an Eighth Amendment Law and Litigation course, taught by Professor Bryan Stevenson. He is brilliant, and the course is easily the most influential one I’ve taken, ever.
