Introducing the Lifestyle Section

Some of the best advice given to first-year law students (aka 1Ls)—who are eagerly looking for the code to crack the mystery of law school—is to remind them that prior to stepping foot on NYU’s campus (well, walking down public streets and entering the Halls of Furman and Vanderbilt), they had a life that consisted of hobbies, interests, and other pastimes. The people who seem to do the best in law school, and the ones that are the happiest doing it, are those who have found a way to maintain themselves despite urges to become the no-social-life having, always-in-the-library law student.

Thus, the Lifestyle section of The Commentator serves to provide a forum that addresses the non-law aspects of your life. We will bring you creative pieces written by your peers, fashion blogs, spoken word poetry, health and workout tips, and just about anything else you want – whether it’s fit to print or not! (Editor’s note: just kidding – it will totally be fit to print.)

Our primary goal is to encourage you to maintain a healthy work-life balance. But we also want to create a safe space where you can express yourself. Help us prove that law students are not only some of the smartest people you will meet, but some of the most creative as well.
