Halloween Quips & Flashcards Tips

Posted by Library Blog on 10/26/2017 at 02:35 PM

Imagine enjoying a nice, leisurely stroll through a haunted corn maze when all of the sudden Jason pops up with a chainsaw, causing you to take a tumble and hurt your ankle. If one of your first thoughts is whether a breach of duty occurred, then you are definitely thinking like a lawyer! 

Stop by the Law Library on Halloween to trick or treat yourself to some candy and read about some real-life spooky cases (including ones with chainsaw wielding horror characters).

You can also take a short study break and browse some of the Law Library’s more eerie and magical titles, such as:

If you need a little break from the law, you can also take a short walk to the undergraduate library and check out a classic thriller, maybe one by macabre master Stephen King. Law students have borrowing privileges at the undergraduate library, so enjoy!

After all the Halloween festivities have wrapped up, you may want to get a head start on studying for finals or the bar exam. The Law Library has just the event for you! 

The librarians and Academic Success will be hosting a flashcard-making event in the Kent Law Library Student Lounge from 12:30-1:30pm on Wednesday, November 1st. Stop by to get flashcard making tips and learn about alternatives to traditional flashcards (all hail Quizlet!).Demonstrations and supplies will be provided!
