    Non-Sequiturs: 03.08.13

    * Nepal had actual regulations regarding Yeti killing. When will America join the international community and enact strict protections for Sasquatch? [Lowering the Bar]

    * A state bar association is actively discouraging students from going to law school. Which is odd, since the state in question has a top five law school… according to National Jurist. [Associate’s Mind]

    * A clever Civ Pro class used the system against Howard Wasserman to get an extension on their assignment. I respect Wasserman for crediting the students’ ingenuity, but it would have been a better life lesson if he’d impleaded the Dean for forcing him to have grades in early.

    * In honor of International Women’s Day, enjoy an interview of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. [The New Yorker]

    * To follow up on an old story, law grad/convicted sex criminal Chris Dumler is reporting to jail today. [WVIR]

    * The Conclave is now set for Tuesday. Place your bets on the new pontiff now! [CNN]
