One of the most popular questions I get from prospective students and visitors to St. Louis is “What should I do when I’m in town?” After all, St. Louis is a good sized city, but it is no New York or Chicago. But fear not, there are plenty of things to do in St. Louis, so I put together this weekend guide to STL to help you out when you visit the city! I’ve also included …Continue reading 72 Hours in the Lou’

I hope this post finds you doing well. I had a totally INSANE week! The beginning of the week was packed with meetings. The Animal Law Society kick-off meeting went well, we had delicious vegetarian lunch offerings from Snarf’s for everyone and discussed a great many exciting issues. We also heard back about job interviews this week, AND I attended an Open House at a big downtown law firm. PHEW.
Not only was I busy with …Continue reading Classroom Etiquette

Howdy! I am writing a couple of days late because I wanted to give you the full details of what went down this weekend. The life of a 1L can get pretty hectic…
Client Counseling Competition: On Friday night I got together with one of my fav gal pals at Pi (a mega-delicious Pizza place 5 mins from campus) to go over our plan of action for the Client Counseling Competition. This competition, as well as the …Continue reading What. A. Weekend.

Greetings and salutations, reader!
I’ve decided, with a bit of hesitation, to write a post about this blogger’s most requested topic: Law School Romance. With Law School Prom and Valentine’s Day coming up, I guess it’s somewhat appropriate, so I’ll oblige despite being intimidated.
In general, it seems that people have pretty strong feelings about dating in law school. Before I started at WashU, I was told by many friends at other schools that I should absolutely refrain …Continue reading Caught in a Law School Romance

Hello and Happy Friday to you! I am coming to you live from a winter wonderland since St. Louis had a mini-blizzard this week. Classes were still held though, don’t you worry, so I’ve got lots to tell!
When you get to law school you will experience a new and unique type of panic. It’s the panic of sitting in a room with 100 competitive, brilliant people you hardly know, and without notice, having to answer difficult …Continue reading Brrr It’s Cold In Here

This past week was a wonderful welcome back to law school. After what felt like months apart, I was thrilled to be reunited with my law school pals who traveled back home for break. We got together to have some fun, but also to learn about lawyering… so here’s what we’ve been up to:
1L Intersession – “Succeeding Early”
We were brought together all day Tuesday – Friday for the law school’s 1L Intersession Program. Intersession is …Continue reading Welcome Back

I was having a bit of writer’s block today…mostly because I have been spending the last week compulsively cleaning my apartment, watching Law & Order SVU, and sleeping for 12-14 hours a day. If I blogged about what I was doing, the post would stop right here.
So in an effort to write something more worthwhile, I sought the advice of my friends on Facebook…

Happy Holidays from St. Louis! (or if you’re not into holidays, Happy Wednesday!)
I’ve been traveling to visit family, so I’ve been a zombie for the past few days…but now that I’m up and at it, I am excited to post this extremely silly video I made for you all.
If you’re just tuning in – I grew up in St. Louis, so when I applied to WashU, the “moving to a new city is scary” variable was …Continue reading So You Want to Go To Law School in St. Louis

Let’s reflect, shall we?
In the past 5 months, I, Kailey Burger:
matriculated at Washington University Law School (where, despite being from St. Louis, I only knew one other student)
participated in a week-long orientation with 270+ people I didn’t know from all over the world (in a building I had only been in once before)
attended a full semester of law school classes (please include here the reading for hours, taking notes, and occasional voluntary participation)
was COLD-CALLED IN CLASS …Continue reading 1L of a Good Time
