Happy 3 Year Birthday to our little Jupiter “Squeaky”. 

Came home from oral arguments to some red velvet, red wine, and Ryan Gosling (oh and some lovely birthday cards and Easter peeps). Birthday weekend is off to a great start!

Lawyering up at the courthouse arguing education equality for students with disabilities. We’re a rag tag bunch bunch of 1L’s but we sure have heart. 

I randomly ran into a great friend from Kurume, while waiting outside the Blazers stadium. His first time in America and his first NBA game. It was great to catch up.

My walk to school is pretty perfect.

Spring has sprung.

Finally at two in the morning, we can proudly say our 50 page brief is finished. At least my brief partners managed to maintain their mental sanity…

Australia v. Japan... Sorry, Japan. →

Not that we like to make our blog all political ‘n stuff. But we can’t help but share our giddiness over the latest ruling out of The Hague. Using the law to positively shape human-animal interactions was among one of the major reasons I decided to attend law school. And I can now proudly demonstrate just how important lawyers can be to bring about that change. Because FINALLY, Japanese commercial whaling in the Antarctic has been held to be in violation of International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling. This is pretty huge, people. No longer will Japan be able to kill hundreds of whales each year under the guise of research. A big victory for the whales (and all wildlife, to be sure), and a great step in the right direction for animal law!

You’re looking at the newest members of the Scales of Justice dragon boat racing team! Samantha’s law school owns a dragon boat that it races during the Portland Rose festival, so she signed us up to be on the rowing team. Come cheer us on in June!

Got the week off for spring break, so I jetted down to San Diego with my mom to check out my brother’s new, swanky home in La Jolla.

From what I can tell, I think rearing cats is a lot like rearing kids. They like to sit in boxes and hide under couches.
