Health(s)Care: Provider Consolidation

In Short In recent years, the U.S. has seen an increase in hospital mergers and acquisitions and in hospitals acquiring physician groups. This wave of provider consolidation led to measurable operational efficiencies but has possibly exacerbated the preexisting lack of access to care and removed incentives on providers to decrease the cost of care. Through it all, patients are caught in the cross-fire without much say in the matter. Fortunately, a few non-traditional health care entities are bringing care closer to the patient, and giving more traditional health care providers a run for their money. In Full The number of hospital…

Minding the Business that Pays You

One of the most difficult parts of law school thus far has been fighting the urge to get swept up in the all-consuming comparison trap. "Comparison is the thief of joy” is all too real when it comes to law school even though it is almost human nature to compare yourself with others. Comparison is something that most people utilize because it seems to serve as a way of measuring our success and achievement against someone who we deem to be in similar standing to us. The hard part about comparing yourself to others is that we live in a…

How I Speak Up!

Hello Ms. JDers!  Someone I loved said that I should not go to law school because they did not “think [I] would make it.” I am laughing internally at them all the way to graduation. Speaking up is not only about what you say, but also what you do. I owed no words, and I owe myself continued, unwavering pursuit of my dreams. As lawyers, we are generally not at a loss for words. So I believe it is the effort we put into advocating for others that matters. Do your job AND do it well. Do not be satisfied…

Learning the Securities Industry: Lessons from a Panel of Experts

This time last year, I developed a newfound love of securities law while I was studying for my Corporations final. Locked in a study room with my study partner, outlining the elements of classical insider trading and the misappropriation theory, I discovered an area of law that was new and very interesting to me. The following semester, I enrolled in a mix of business and securities law classes to learn more about the intersections between the two areas. I even enrolled in accounting (which I found fascinating).  Despite having worked at the Securities and Exchange Commission as an Honors Intern…

The Closed Door - A Reflection

Think about a time you were told no. Think about how it made you feel and why it made you feel that way. Now think about how you maneuvered this situation. Did you used that no as a stepping stone to better yourself or did you allow the no to make you feel as though you were helpless and/or stuck? Was the no impactful to the point that you ruminated on the event or did you forget about it right after it happened? As a law student, NO is one of the most frustrating words I can hear. Whether it…
