community lawyers


Congressman Luis Gutierrez had questions for ICE. Instead of answers, he got led out in handcuffs.

  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials handcuffed Democratic Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez after he refused to leave ICE’s Chicago offices on Monday.
  • Gutierrez was at the office with a group of lawmakers, community activists and immigration lawyers for a meeting with ICE about recent deportation cases. 
  • When the meeting concluded, Gutierrez and seven others felt that officials had not yet answered some of their most pressing questions and decided to stay until they did. Read more (3/14/17 9:12 PM)

4-5 // 100 Days of Productivity 

I exist! Yesterday was so exhausting. I had work from 7:30 am-11:00 am, 3 classes back to back right afterward, a training session about 30 minutes after my last class, and I didn’t eat dinner until 8. I fell asleep sweaty and gross but in a deep, refreshing slumber until an upset stomach woke me up at 4:00 am this morning. 

Today was very low key, which was awesome. I had one class at 1:00, a meeting right afterward, and I had to scan my transcripts to send my internship. I went to Texas Roadhouse for the first time ever and it was so much fun. I ate with my roommates before heading over to Target to grocery shop. 

All of my roommates decided to go out for the night despite the fact that it is snowing profusely. I went to the gym and decided to catch up on some homework. I just did some cardio and some 5-minute abdominal workout. It was supposed to be my rest day so I tried to do a low impact workout. I just did the elliptical for about 20 minutes and another 5 minutes on the bike. 

My homework has been moving along quite nicely. I wrote my Odyssey article, tried to do my professional writing blog (but there are some issues with the confirmation email on Wordpress so I cannot publish said blog), and I’m about to read for my American Gothic class.

Tomorrow I have work from 11-2. I’m heading to the gym afterward to get my arm and abdominal workout in before doing, even more, homework. Tomorrow should be rather quiet, though. Hopefully, I can get two hours into LSAT studying and my literary criticism homework. 

Anyway, it’s going to be a late night!


New post is up today! I listed my top “No Bullshit Productivity Tips for Law School”. Check it out on 

This would be something good for you if you’re starting law school in the fall or in the next couple years.
