Booked by the Bar

The review course for the CA bar exam is now in full-swing. As anticipated, studying for this 3-day test is going to entirely dominate the next couple months. Unfortunately, this means a rather uninteresting period of time for me as far as athletic pursuits and therefore little to write about on here about myself ๐Ÿ˜ฆย …

Law School Graduation!

Today was the graduation ceremony from Stanford Law School! It was a great ceremony and reception with memorable speeches from the faculty member, Professor Bankman, and student rep, Onye. Lunch with the family was also great at Macaroni Grill. We topped it all off by watching some great distance running events at the Payton Jordan…

Wrapping Up

I now have my cap and gown for graduation on Sunday and a nice frame for my diploma, but I also have two boxes worth of review books for the bar review course. Graduation will be sweet, but I will really only feel done after I take and pass the California Bar. I am still…

Last Class!

Today I had my class in law school… ever! I also turned in the two long papers and assignments for other classes, thereby completing all requirements. The last three years have gone by so fast. It seems so recent that I opened the acceptance letter from Stanford and ran around the house in joy. Now,…

Almost Finished!

Graduation from law school is May 4th and all assignments are due April 23rd, but I am almost done, including completion of two long papers (a total of 80 pages). The only major thing left is a contract mark-up which I can hopefully put away by the end of this weekend. I look forward to…

Windy Hill Loop

Today I did the Windy Hill Loop and it was awesome as usual. Running time was 1:26 with about 12.5-13 miles covered. Despite a little mud, the sunny skies and fresh air after last week’s rain were a treat. The visibility from the summit of Windy Hill along the Anniversary Trail was spectacular. The sights…

Shake-out

Today I did an easy run around campus for 52 minutes. The weather continues to be gorgeous with temps in the upper 50’s and clear skies. However, the weather is expected to become much more active later in the week with rain, wind, and cooler temps. Some of the trails become super muddy (the sticky…

Final Class List

I have finalized my schedule for my last semester in law school. I can’t believe this is my last class list – wow, time flies! It is a very random schedule, but it works: Partnership Taxation Advanced Legal Research Advanced Legal Writing – Drafting Contracts Minority Rights in Israel Independent Research in Corporate Lawyer Ethics…

Fall Semester Complete!

Fall Semester of my third year in law school is now complete after taking a final exam in taxation this morning. Tomorrow I travel back home to Sammamish, WA for winter break where it is apparently very cold and damp – I’m not surprised ๐Ÿ™‚ .   Some very sad news today regarding global warming….

Happy Chanukah!

Yesterday was the first night of Chanukah and to celebrate here is a hilarious video of NBA stars wishing their Jewish fans a happy festival of lights! Today was the last day of classes of the Fall semester! It’s unbelievable how fast it flew by. Now I have to study for one final, take it…

Week recap

Three of my four classes this semester are now complete! I can’t believe how fast this semester flew by. All that I have remaining is a final in tax law on December 11th. I’m also doing research assistant work for the Venture Capital Course offered next semester so I will still be busy the next…

Doesn’t feel like November…

The weather here is ridiculously nice for late November with temps in the mid 60s and sunshine every single day! Furthermore, the weather forecast for the next 10+ days holds the strong west coast ridge of high pressure in place (a “blocking pattern”). This translates into more tranquil weather with sunny days and crisp nights/mornings….
