In this new edition of The Commentary:

STRESSED ABOUT FINALS? — Meet your new Academic Achievement team and read their advice

Moot Court Shines — Twenty students competed in trial, appellate, and negotiation competitions

Bee Decline Threatens Food Supply — Crops are at risk from reduction of bees and other pollinators

Student writers are what make The Commentary so great! This trimester we have had an amazing group of talented writers join our team, and we want to thank everyone for their contributions.

Special thanks to Oliver Fredrickson, our Supreme Court reporter, who was a visiting student this trimester from Victoria University in New Zealand. He wrote an in-depth report on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation and an overview of upcoming U.S. Supreme Court cases. We appreciate his time and talent and wish him the very best finishing his legal studies in New Zealand!

For next trimester, we are always looking for students to submit articles on topics of their choice — including, but not limited to: campus news, legal news, sports, entertainment, etc. No long-term commitment is required, so feel free to submit a draft and share your academic/creative talents with the campus community, when you’re not out fighting crimes, going to class, or studying in the library! We also have meetings with free food 🙂

To learn how to contribute to The Commentary in the spring, contact us at commentary@law.cwsl.edu for submissions and questions/story ideas.

Sara Gold & Tandis Taghavi, Editors-in-Chief
