Career Update: I’m a Noogler (Part 1)

all opinions shared are my own and do not represent Google I’ll begin by saying that this has been an exhausting emotional roller-coaster since the beginning of my 2L year. For the quick tl;dr: I am officially a full-time Policy Specialist and Product Lead for Google Trust and Safety. This is part one of a […]

How Can I Prepare for Law School?

  The short answer: you can’t. If you’re anything like me, you’re likely not satisfied with that answer. I certainly wasn’t. I get it. I’m a naturally anxious person – so every day I wasn’t doing something productive during my 0L summer, I was fretting. Sound familiar? I have some good news. There’s actually a […]

Summer Recap: #Tweagle #Tern

  I hope this post is helpful in a few ways: 1. in providing insight into what an in-house legal internship at a large tech company looks like; 2. in shedding some light on some alternative career paths that aren’t often higlighted in law school; and 3. in giving an update as to what I’m […]

  Surprise surprise, I’m taking Internet law this semester — the only reason I wanted to go to law school in the first place. In an effort to help students “fall back in love with writing” the course requires us to write several non-legal-memo style papers about topics in Internet law (go figure). Because I […]

This is probably the nerdiest post you’ll ever read on this site so strap in. (Huge thank you to Alex Handley and Jeff Cohen for collaborating w/me on this project!). It didn’t really hit me until second semester but I realized that Civil Procedure is really just akin to a trade carding game I’ve consistently […]

1L Resources

There are two things I’ve always really admired about Santa Clara Law that I think makes us stand out among other law schools. 1. Our collaborative environment (which is normally strange for law school) and 2. How willing upper-year and alumni students are to give back and help us rising professionals succeed. In an effort […]

Dear 1L Jess

With Santa Clara Law about to kick off their orientation this week, I thought now would be a good time to finally write this post: A letter to my 1L self. Dear 1L Jess, So you decided to go to law school. Why? I don’t mean that as in “why would you do this to […]

Summer Reading: Resources for Internet and Privacy Law

“What should I read to prepare for law school?” Answer: nothing. As cynical as it sounds, nothing will prepare you for law school. Don’t waste money on pre-law summer classes (scam) or buy your casebooks in advance (hella expensive and you don’t even know which ones you need yet). “Getting To Maybe,” the classic summer-before-law-school […]
