Halloween Obsessions and LP Review Sessions!
Imagine enjoying a nice, leisurely stroll through a haunted corn maze when suddenly 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, in-person or virtually, this Halloween season to read about some real-life spooky cases, including ones with chainsaw wielding horror characters! 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, 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.
Without many of our normal Halloween festivities this year, if you need a little break from the law, remember that you can also browse the undergraduate library’s collection and check out a classic thriller novel or movie, maybe one by macabre master Stephen King. Law students have borrowing privileges for the undergraduate library’s materials, so enjoy!
LP1 students: In case you don’t get enough tricks and treats this Halloween season, don’t forget to sign up for your upcoming mandatory training sessions, where you’ll learn plenty of tricks (like how to research effectively) and treats (like getting to hang out on Zoom with your awesome law librarians)!
