Halloween Obsessions and LP Review Sessions!
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 yo’ self 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:
- The Little Book of Holiday Law– read about Halloween pranks that went awry.
- The Judge Who Hated Red Nail Polish & Other Crazy but True Stories of Law & Lawyers – this book gives a much needed answer to the age old question: would the law protect you from buying a haunted house?
- The Law and Harry Potter– if you still pine for your letter from Hogwarts, take a look at this book where legal academics from around the world look at the depiction of law and legal institutions in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels.
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!
LP1 students: before you go off to enjoy the Halloween fun, don’t forget that your mandatory Research Review session is on Monday, October 29th at 12:15 p.m. in room 283. Hopefully reviewing legal research doesn’t scare you too much…Library Blog
