Did that title catch you? I hope it did, because it’s true. What else do we think about when we commit to graduate school except what opportunities will be open to us after such a monumental a choice? Before BC Law, I was a paralegal. I lived in Manhattan and London after college. To be honest, I thought I had peaked. Those experiences defined me, I think, and like many who would read this blog, there’s a lot riding on where you want to commit such a massive amount of capital. But at BC Law, I get to teach an undergraduate class. Right? It’s AWESOME!
A Brazilian man (an LLM, who I now count as an incredible friend) and I teach 26 bright young minds of tomorrow in a class focusing on Environmental Law and American Jurisprudence. At BC, if you focus in Environmental Law, you have the opportunity to teach a college class. You really can’t say that enough. I’ve done a lot in the law and in law school. I worked at Cravath. I’ve negotiated federal treaties with federally recognized Alaskan tribes. And because of the famous BC network, I got to work at the DOJ in my 1L year. But this, wow, this has been the best thing I’ve ever done.
The program is open to students in other Boston area law schools, but is the solely the product of BC. If we have this, imagine the other opportunities you can cultivate for yourself at this place. The sky truly is the limit.
