Starting law school can be a scary thing. As scary as thinking it is a good idea to watch that horror movie late at night when you are home alone, or finding a big spider above the ceiling of your bedroom (okay I have to admit, that one is possibly scarier than attending law school). Now that I have graduated, I can look back at my experience studying law and reflect on my personal journey. Even though I succeeded in getting that coveted law degree, I still wish I had done or knew particular things about studying at uni that I know now, before I actually started law school. In today’s blogpost – the very first in my new Back to Law School/University series, I am going to be sharing the things I wish I knew before starting law school/university.View Post

Dear Diary… This was the last day of my old life. A life as an ambitious law student in Washington DC at the George Washington University Law School. A life filled with sleepless caffeinated study nights in the law library, long calls with my girls about how much we wanted to cry over our papers, and friendships I made for a lifetime. It’s time to say goodbye. This is my last day of law school; and the first day of my new life. Today, is the first day of a new beginning.View Post

Ever since I’ve started studying at the George Washington University Law School and finished my first semester, my study routine for Law School/University exams has definitely changed. Not only is it quite different to study in a new country with a new legal system in general, the American system in particular also varies a lot from the Dutch study system I am used to. Although I would say that the level of difficulty of the courses is the same, American Law Schools expect way more preparation, interaction, and discussion from you during their lectures based on the Socratic method, and you also have to juggle more law courses than in the Dutch system. So how do I do it?View Post
