Law and Business Society Speaker

On Tuesday we had the second speaker for the Law and Business Society. We were extremely fortunate to have Professor Grundfest speak, who is an amazing lecturer and teacher of two excellent courses at the law school (capital markets/securities regulation and venture capital). We had a great turnout and the students enjoyed the talk, which…

Fun negotiation

Today I had a really fun negotiation exercise for real estate transactions class. I negotiated the lease terms as the tenant with the landlord, which was another student. We each met with a practicing attorney to discuss strategies and then did the negotiation as they observed. After the negotiation, they gave us feedback on our…

Getting Busy

Things have gotten a quite busy all of the sudden with various assignments, reading, and events to attend. Tomorrow I have a client interview exercise in downtown Palo Alto which should be fun. I ran today at Los Altos Hills for 60 minutes. I covered a loop I often run in surprisingly fast time, especially…

Back in CA for the second time

I am back at Stanford as fly back week is over and classes resume tomorrow. I had a really fun time at home. Between the 50k trail race and the Mount Stuart speed climb, I got some quality relaxation time at home. I basically forgot everything about reading law textbooks, articles, and assignments, but now…

Back Home!

I am back in Sammamish for flyback week! At Stanford Law, second and third year students get a week off from classes for law firm interviews. This is mostly for second year students as myself and many other third year students do not have any interviews lined up. The result? A complete week off. I…

Huddart Run

I had a good run at Huddart Park today despite it being in the middle of the day and quite hot. Huddart is one of the best places to run on a hot day because it is all in thick, shady forest. The run was 76 minutes long, approx. 2,000 feet of gain, and about…

First Day of Classes

Today was the first day of classes of my last year at Stanford Law School. I had tax law in the morning and real estate transactions this evening. Both classes were interesting. Tomorrow I have tax again in the morning and a corporate governance colloquium in the afternoon. This afternoon I had an awesome run…

2L Year Finished

I completed my final this morning and now my second year of law school is complete. It’s unbelievable how fast time is flying! The exam was a four hour closed book test with lots of writing and lots of memorization. Both my hand and head hurt right now. I tried my best and I feel…

Countdown

The big final is tomorrow morning at 8:30 am. It will all be over at 12:30 pm tomorrow. I plan on giving my brain a break for a few days 🙂 Yesterday I went to a track meet at Stanford and watched my friend from Rice compete in the 5k. I also saw Mircea Bogdan…

Busy Week Ahead

More studying and more NBA basically sums it up for me! Some more review today and tomorrow and then it’s exam time. The end is drawing near and I am ready to take the exam. After the exam, it becomes a busy week as I fly home the same day (Tuesday), pack up on Wednesday,…

Studying

I am in full-on studying mode for my final on Tuesday. I’ll be happy on Tuesday at 12:30 pm when it will be over. The plan today is to study some more and then watch some NBA this evening. The Warriors played a great game yesterday defeating the #1-seeded Mavs for the second time, and…

Last class of 2L year

Today was the last class of my second year at Stanford Law. It’s amazing how fast it’s gone. I have only one year left and I will actually be a practicing lawyer. It’s still kind of a weird thought, but I’m beginning to see myself being successful in the “real world.” After all, Stanford is…
