So You Want to Be An International Lawyer: Fathers Can Be Lawyers too

My birthday is May 31, which this year is shavouot, a small holiday that celebrates the giving of the Torah to humanity on Mount Sinai. The holiday also is a time of great food, like cheesecake and ice cream and lots of singing and dancing... All perfect for a naturally occurring birthday party. In other years my birthday of May 31 has coincided with magnificent life events such as my law school graduation. And in other years, Memorial Day with big parades and barbecues in the USA and the opening of the outdoor swimming pool. My birthday is also a…

Making the Most of Your 3L Year

3L is a funny time.  It’s a transition period.  By 3L, you no longer feel that law or law school is new or novel.  You feel impatient to “get school over with” and start working.  But you’re not allowed to practice law yet, and you must wait nearly a year to even take the bar. So, what to do with this time? 3L may be an awkward year, but there are still lots of things you can do to make the most of this time!  It’s a great year to explore and have fun, form good habits for the future,…

Pre-Law Diaries: Rachel Taratuta-Titus

I first considered law as a career path at the beginning of my sophomore year at Columbia College (though admittedly, I did have an interest in law after watching Legally Blonde at the age of eight!). I joined the Columbia Pre-Law Society as a general member and attended several of the many events the society offers, including LSAT workshops, logic game quiz bowl, and law school admissions essay workshops. The LSAT logic game workshop was the most memorable for me: the instructor showed us how to create clear diagrams and tackle challenging questions quickly and efficiently. I also joined the…

What Independence Day Means for Women Lawyers

Independence Day, aka the Fourth of July, is a big holiday in America. I have such wonderful and vivid childhood memories of celebrating on the shores of Lake Michigan, dancing around sparklers buried in the sand, and eating burgers, watermelon, cake with red, white and blue frosting and trying to elude adult eyes to steal a sip of beer from the inevitable keg.  Those were wonderful days.  Our dads were back from the European and Pacific Theaters of World War II after having secured freedom on foreign soil, and we knew it was a good life. This year, when we…

Appealing Sentences: Dear 1L Me

With only a few days left of the semester, I asked women on campus to share what they would tell their 1L self. Law school may be the most difficult thing you will do in your life thus far. But it is worth it, and it can be done. You can do everything you want to do, just be prepared to have coffee be your most important food group. Surround yourself with good people, and be involved in the campus community. Don’t give up the things you love. Everyone is just as scared, confused, and stressed as you, but keep…
