Happy Halloween!

Halloween is a time for all things spooky, even court cases and law books. In fact, a magazine called NWLawyer compiled a top ten list of cases to spook you. More locally, there was a court case a few years ago which was Halloween-themed!

A review of our catalog uncovered several scary titles in the law library collection, including The Sleepy Lagoon Murder Case, Of Murder and Madness, and Internal Bleeding: The Truth Behind America's Terrifying Epidemic of Medical Mistakes. Possibly the scariest law book title of them all is Body Parts: Property Rights and the Ownership of Human Biological Materials which debates whether the body, human organs and DNA should be subject to property law. This book and many other books with hair-raising titles are available via our WebCatalog.

Whether you are taking time this October to read up on property rights or about the Slender Man case, have a safe and enjoyable Halloween. For a relaxing and scary treat, take a few minutes of your study time and play one of these spine-chilling online games or Monday through Wednesday stop by the library to join in the contest to guess the number of candy in the “pumpkin” jar!

Happy Halloween
