Fall Semester Update

It’s hard to believe that I’m almost halfway through my last year of law school. As exciting as this is, a quick moving semester also means fast approaching finals. Whether you’re a 1L or a 3L, finals season is stressful. In addition to studying, most students are involved in extracurricular activities and many even hold down jobs throughout the school year.

For example, my typical day consists of more than just attending classes. This semester I was able to schedule myself on campus only three times per week while still taking all the classes I wanted to take. This allowed me to continue working at the same firm I worked for over the summer while still being involved on campus during my down time. During my breaks from class, you can usually find me in the ILR office, the Mediation clinic (CMAC), or at a club meeting. Loyola is unique in that it schedules classes so that students can get involved on campus and work while still getting a world class education.

Even though finding a balance between life and school can be difficult for law students, it is key to making sure you’re in the best state of mind to perform both academically and mentally. Whether this means working out, taking naps, or getting together with friends, my motto has been to take an hour or so every day to do something outside of school or work.
