You’ve probably heard of bar review. But what else does the Student Bar Association do?

My greatest fear in coming to law school was the rest of my class.

There’s this weird tradition in American law schools that seems particularly out of place in a world of musty casebooks, crippling workloads, and reflexively competitive people. Every year, all across this great nation of ours, future litigators, judges, educators, and businessmen stop studying, put on stage makeup, and pretend like they’re actors in the strange, sometimes scary ritual of legal education we call Law Revue.

Last Thursday, NYU Law’s International Law Society, SBA, and Asia Law Society came together to sponsor the annual International Food Festival in an attempt to break me out of my second-semester funk.

Debating between attending either NYU or Columbia Law School? Rather than relying on a Magic 8 Ball, read this post, based on both facts and the perspectives of students from each school, to discover the differences and make your decision.

Preparing for finals is not the only way you can opt to spend your spring break at NYU Law. These next few entries include stories of how two NYU Law students chose to spend their spring breaks—one to explore legal careers in Asia, and the other to volunteer legal assistance in Alaska.

The summer before my first year at NYU Law, I was convinced that law school would be some sort of horrible nightmare that I would somehow survive, yet hate in the process. I was so wrong.

I’ve found that meditating is a perfect oasis away from the stresses of law school.

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.

One big thing that separates the top law schools: The students. NYU Law has a healthy variety of all kinds.

Because it’s been terrifying to watch the ever-increasing vilification of Islam, I attended a candlelight vigil on September 10th, in support of citywide tolerance and religious freedom.

When I first arrived at NYU Law, I attended Law Women’s 1L Mixer. I was curious about the organization that represents 47% of the NYU Law student body. Little did I know how central this group would become to my law school experience.

After being thoroughly entertained and impressed by fellow law students’ performances in both Law Revue (an annual musical that satirizes all things law school) and the Deans’ Cup (an annual basketball game between the law schools of NYU and Columbia that raises funds for public interest jobs), I am convinced there are people in law school who missed their true callings.

Lawyers are highly educated and incredibly competitive. I’ve discovered that I’m not alone in my love of trivia contests.

I was thrilled that I had completed my first year of law school, but true to my Teach For America roots, I reflected on ways I could improve the experience. I decided I wanted to better manage my stress. I have been hooked on Bikram Yoga Manhattan ever since.

Before I started law school, I was advised not to get involved in student organizations during my first year. I quickly came to disagree.

I am working hard to finish this post. Why? Because I am going to a taping of The Colbert Report this evening. Am I excited? Does the Rooker-Feldman doctrine prohibit lower federal courts from sitting in direct review of state court decisions??
