Here at Above the Law, we frequently publish stories about law students who have been accused of doing pretty bad things. Take, for example, the law students and recent law school graduates who have graced our pages in the past few months:

  • Tammy Hsu (authored an arrogant blog and insulted her classmates)
  • Stephen McDaniel (accused of murder and child pornography possession)
  • Ilan Grapel (accused of being a spy by Egyptian authorities)
  • Reema Bajaj (accused of prostitution)
  • Johnathan Perkins (admitted to fabricating a tale of racial harassment by the police)

Enough with the law students gone bad. Today, we thought we’d change it up a little bit and bring you a story about a law student who did something good. Actually, this particular law student did something great.

On August 31, a law student rescued an orphaned baby. Who is this remarkable heroine and where does she go to school?

Our heroine’s name is Beth Robinson, and she is a second-year law student at the University of Louisville’s Louis D. Brandeis School of Law in Kentucky. We are shocked that this story has not yet made national headlines.

UofL Law reported on the story yesterday:

Beth Robinson, a second-year law student, rescued a six-week old orphaned raccoon found yesterday behind the Law School. Dean Ballard took the baby raccoon to Woodland Wildlife Rehabilitation in Radcliffe, Kentucky. The rehab specialist suspected that the baby’s mother had been injured because the baby raccoon was starved and dehydrated. She also suspects that there may be two or three other orphaned raccoons from the same nest. If you see a baby raccoon near the Law School, please contact Dean Ballard.

It’s not a real baby, but all the fur definitely adds to the cuteness factor.

Did you actually think that a law student rescued a real, live baby? Come on, law students have way more important things to do right now, like brag about all of their interviews and callbacks.

So, yeah, Robinson rescued a raccoon. At least she was a good samaritan.
