What Would Chief Justice Snoop Dogg Sound Like?

When you think about it, Snoop has a lot in common with Biglaw partners: no matter what they’re doing, they have their mind on their money and their money on their mind. Or maybe that’s what Snoop has in common with law school deans. In any event, what legal writing is sorely lacking is Snoop’s unique vernacular.

So when we discovered — a website that converts web pages into Snoop-speak — we couldn’t help but spend some time converting law school and law firm bios, SCOTUS decisions, and even one of Elie’s ATL articles.

I mean, any site that translates a Supreme Court decision to include, “It aint nuthin but tha nick nack patty wack, I still gots tha bigger sack,” is worth spending a few hours playing around with.

Fo shizzle…

First up is Case Western Reserve Dean Lawrence Mitchell. You can click on the two images below to enlarge if you can’t read it.

Actually, the title “Pimp of Law” may be a little too accurate based on this picture. And it may be a little uncomfortable in light of stories like this one (which has also been Gizoogled).

By the way, my favorite part of the translation is the footnote:

Case is on tha rise. We is one of tha only law schools up in tha ghetto ta have experienced any rise up in median LSATs last year, n’ ours rose a whoppin 2 points, n’ you can put dat on yo’ toast. Our university, ranked #37th by U.S. Shit & Ghetto Report, be attractin record numberz of applicants.

On the next page, let’s check out Chief Justice Roberts’s decision in Hollingsworth….
