    Who Let the Dog Out? Not the Yale Law Library

    Earlier this week, we reported on the Yale Law School library apparently allowing students to “check out” a stress-relieving dog named Monty, for 30-minute periods.

    Yale Law School Going to the Dogs?

    The Truth About Cats and Dogs: What’s the Best Pet for Lawyers?

    It’s hard to find someone to love who also loves you. It’s a lot easier to find an animal with which to establish a loving relationship. Just make sure it’s not too loving. Many lawyers are proud pet owners, bringing cats, dogs, small wolves, iguanas, and/or flying squirrels into their apartments and homes. Your ATL […]
