An update from the conflict management student.

July 21, 2008

Oh, where have I been? I know it’s been a while…

Things with school have been relaxed the last few weeks since I finished up my last two papers before my final major work: the report on my internship, which I am currently engaged in.

Let me take a step back. My last two papers both covered interesting topics. One was an overdue paper for a mandatory class I took in the first year which was something about conflict in Jewish history. It covered the Dreyfus Affair and the many perspectives through which to view the Antisemitism involved.

The second paper was a bit more interesting and personal to write – that was a study of adult children enduring their parents’ late-life divorce. It was based on a survey I did and some research; one of the conclusions of the paper is that there is simply not enough academic research out there (though I did read a few good articles).

The internship I’m doing is in online dispute resolution. It’s taking place on a wiki Q&A site that is based on a social community of members who ask and answer questions and work towards this global goal of creating a major source for quality Q&A. It’s very much in a growing stage right now and conflict resolution was a definite must for this community.

It’s been engaging so far and I should have lots to write about. Looking forward to sharing my insights.

Reason #421 why I’m not a law student.

July 30, 2007

As if I needed more than one reason, I’ll consider it reason #421 why I’m not a law student: the endless torrents of painful detail-oriented studying.

On Friday morning (8:30 am sharp) I will (hopefully) be sitting down to my very last final of all time. By that I mean written, timed test.

If I pass it, it’ll be a truly sweet moment to be done with written tests in my academic career. I’m a paper-gal, let’s face it.

The course is basically in Israeli Arbitration Law. Not too bad of a subject, if it wasn’t for all the… law.

Wish me luck!
