  • You know you're getting old when this is the Spock you're referring to.

    Alan Dershowitz, Canada, Guido Calabresi, Laurence Tribe, Law Professors, Non-Sequiturs, Student Loans

    Non-Sequiturs: 07.11.12

    * Canadian comes to America, goes into $100,000 worth of law school debt, and has no job. Mwahahaha, Canada, let’s see your superior health care system find a cure for that! [Globe and Mail]

    * Wait, you’re not supposed to take your baby along when you go to see a prostitute? Okay. Got it. See, that’s the kind of tip that isn’t in any of the Dr. Spock books. [Wave3]

    * Ben Bernanke can time travel… [Dealbreaker]

    * … While John Mara, owner of the WORLD CHAMPION New York Giants, simply revises history. [Forbes]

    * Kenny Heitz, an Irell & Manella partner and former UCLA basketball champion, passed away. [Daily News]

    Penn Law Professor Too Lazy To Come Up With New Multiple Choice Questions Causes Exam SNAFU

    As David Lat said earlier this week, “Here at Above the Law, we’re trying to help you.” Honestly, think of Above the Law as the MPRE, but for situations people in the legal community are actually likely to face. Don’t conduct sensitive firm business on a crowded train. Don’t offer hand-jobs in school-wide emails. And […]
