Lawyer March Madness: A Thrilling Showdown at the Law School Library

Lawyer March Madness bracket

Are you ready for the legal battle of 2024? Get ready to witness the ultimate clash of fictional legal titans as Lawyer March Madness returns to the Law Library! In this one-of-a-kind event, fictional lawyers from the realms of literature, film, and television will go head-to-head in a March Madness-style bracket, vying for the coveted title of 2024 Champion. As excitement builds and anticipation reaches fever pitch, the Law Library is gearing up to host another unforgettable showdown.

This year’s Lawyer March Madness promises to be an exhilarating showcase of legal prowess, wit, and charm. Fans of last year's champion, Elle Woods, and runner-up, Vinny Gambini, will have to wait patiently as the dynamic duo is currently on sabbatical, basking in the glory of their victories from the previous year.

But fear not! This year's lineup is just as formidable, featuring a diverse cast of legal legends. Picture Atticus Finch from "To Kill a Mockingbird" squaring off against Jack McCoy from "Law & Order," or Harvey Specter from "Suits" facing off against Alicia Florrick from "The Good Wife." The matchups are as diverse and exciting as the legal world itself. From the quick-witted antics of Will Truman to the unyielding determination of Annalise Keating, the matchups are sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

But here's the twist: the fate of each round lies in the hands of our very own law school community. That's right – students, staff, and faculty will have the opportunity to cast their votes and determine which fictional lawyer advances to the next round. It's democracy in action, in and on the court!

As the competition unfolds, participants and spectators alike can stay up-to-date on all the action by checking the Law Library's Instagram and Facebook pages for updates. Additionally, keep a close eye on your email inbox for the opportunity to cast your vote in each round – after all, every vote counts in determining the fate of our legal titans.

For those who prefer a more hands-on approach, be sure to visit the Law Library to see the giant bracket displayed on the glass walls. Marvel at the matchups, analyze the statistics, and join in the excitement as the competition heats up. Will it be the razor-sharp courtroom skills of Perry Mason that prevail, or the strategic brilliance of Saul Goodman? Only time will tell as the brackets progress and the drama unfolds.

Not only is Lawyer March Madness a thrilling event, but it's also a fantastic opportunity for our law school community to come together, bond over our shared love of the law, and celebrate the rich tapestry of legal fiction. Whether you're a seasoned law student, a dedicated faculty member, or a curious bystander, there's something for everyone to enjoy in this epic showdown.

So, mark your calendars, rally your fellow legal enthusiasts, and prepare for a showdown unlike any other at Lawyer March Madness. It's time to crown a new champion – and who knows, perhaps we'll witness the rise of a new legend in the making. 

Let the games begin!
