Faces of BLS: Sylvester Yavana

Sly 11


‘What advice would you give to 1Ls and 2Ls about surviving law school?’

I would steal a gem from the homie, Professor Linda Feldman and say Define HAPPINESS for yourself. Hers was define success for yourself. But mine is define HAPPINESS for yourself because this place can drive you crazy. It will make you believe that things that don’t matter, matter.  But it is all about perspective, life is all about perspective. Pick what success means to you and pursue that. For example, Your life shouldn’t end if you didn’t make moot court, especially if you never wanted to be a litigator in the first place. At the same time, it’s a double edged sword–Don’t put yourself in a box. Don’t miss out on opportunities.
