last semester:
capacious
inchoate
modalities
normative*

this semester, so far:
usufruct/ usufructuary
appurtenant
normative*



*I still don't understand the Yale Law School use of the word normative. Google tells me that in academic scholarship normative means "relating to an ideal standard or model," but I really don't think that's how my professors (and now classmates, who have somehow figured out the meaning of the word!) are using it.


Life is good. Busy. I fell asleep at 11PM on Friday night and slept until 10AM. It was wonderful and amazing.

I'm taking Administrative Law, Property, Federal Income Taxation, and the LGBT Litigation Clinic. I'm also working as a research assistant to my constitutional law professor from last semester (last week she had me write a memo on the use of abortion language in the early gay rights litigation--interesting, but time consuming). Then the Journal of Law and Feminism, for which I am now a Submissions Co-Editor. Also, the international students are here from Chile, Brazil, and Argentina. We're not hosting anyone, but there are lots of events. Speaking of events--lunch with Dean Spade tomorrow, a conference call with Lambda about our LGBT litigation clinic project (on trans health insurance), and then a lecture from Dean. Then Into to Jewish Law reading group (including a free fleischik dinner, which is most of the reason for going). Oy. Big day.

now, to read tax law before bed. Luckily, I actually enjoy this stuff, a lot. I should, according to all advice, be writing a big article (ideally for eventual publication) this semester, but I didn't feel ready, and I like my classes. So this is good.
