Contests

You still have the weekend to pick the best entry in our Law Revue Video Contest. Every vote matters; there is a tight battle going on between the dirty-minded Columbia students and the clever emcees/crooners over at George Washington.

While the voting battle rages on, we wanted to feed your YouTube addiction just a little bit more. You’ve already seen the worst of the worst. These next few videos weren’t quite good enough to make it to the finals, but I haven’t started drinking yet today, and they still gave me some chuckles.

Without further ado, check out our “Honorable Mentions” for this year…

Yesterday, we brought you some pretty gruesome news about the state of the legal hiring market: there isn’t one (which comes as no surprise to graduating 3Ls and the class of 2011). In fact, according to one former law school student who was profiled by Business Insider, almost everyone he knows from law school is unemployed. Another recent law school grad is on food stamps.

Lawyers can deal with unemployment and food stamps, but are any of them homeless?

Here’s the photo for our latest caption contest….

You’ve seen the worst of the worst; now cast your eyes on the best of the best. Or, perhaps more accurately, “the least musically and comically painful videos of the 2012 law revue season.”

Maybe we’ve just been doing this for too long, but this felt like a rough year in terms of overall quality. And overall eye candy. And overall “could somebody have an original idea”-ness. But there were still a couple of real gems.

As in years past, your reviewers will be David Lat, Elie Mystal, and special guest star Kashmir Hill (now over at Forbes). But they just issue advisory opinions; you hold all the power. Vote early, and vote often.

Who will follow the winners of years past — UVA, Northwestern, and Boston University — into Law Revue lore? The decision lies in your hands….

There are a lot of different definitions of success. Especially in this economy. For instance, some people think I’m not “successful” because I’m a 33-year-old man with two Harvard degrees making a blogger’s salary with no savings or assets while being mired in debt. On the other hand, I’m judgment proof, bitches.

People value different things differently.

In this weekend’s caption contest, we see a lawyer who doesn’t value having eyes quite the way most people do, and he wants an entire interstate to know it….

We started taking submissions for our fourth annual Law Revue Video Contest at the end of March, and now, just two weeks later, we’re ready to pass judgment upon the funny videos submitted by our wonderful readers.

This year, 23 law schools submitted 31 videos for the contest. Some of them were funny, some of them were “meh,” and some of them made us want to cry.

As usual, we’re going to be starting with the videos that made us want to close our heads inside of our laptops. And because I am one bad-ass bitch, I’ve been selected to critique them. Aww, don’t worry, I’ll try to be gentle.

The commenters, on the other hand… Let’s face it, your submission earned you a spot in the dishonorable mentions category. You kind of brought this upon yourselves, so get out the lube, because this might hurt….

It’s time to announce the winner of March’s Lawyer of the Month competition. Readers had five male candidates to choose from, ranging from celebrated conservative litigators, to loud-mouthed state officials, to troubled Biglaw partners. But in the end, only one man had the bravado necessary to beat out the rest — some “gumption,” if you will.

Let’s see who took home the title of Lawyer of the Month for March, an honor surely worth replying-all about….

They say that March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb. And in the case of last month’s legal happenings, that saying held true for the most part. Because even stuttering lambs are still gentle creatures, right?

All in all, March was filled with excitement (of the sexual variety) and disappointment (of the layoff variety) for lawyers. We even got a lesson in how to (and how not to) argue before the Supreme Court.

So who are our nominees for March’s Lawyer of the Month competition?
