What Happened to All the Cool Lawyers on TV?

On television, not very long ago, Ally McBeal, where Calista Flockhart captured the 90s zeitgest by navigating her 20s in a zany Boston law firm with a unisex bathroom, all while wearing high-hemmed business suits and dating Robert Downey, Jr. Before her, there was Arnie Becker and Michael Kuzak and Doug Brackman of L.A. Law’s elite firm of McKenzie, Brackman, Chaney, and Kuzak, who slept with clients after having them sign legal documents, discussed apparently mythical sexual positions called the “Venus Flytrap,” and gallivanted around a sunny Los Angeles with Reagan-era excess. Before them, there was Perry Mason, where Raymond Burr played a immaculately-coifed criminal defense attorney with the remarkable fortuity to not only represent exclusively innocent clients, but to be able to use logic, evidence, and a steely courtroom demeanor to break down the actual perpetrator on the stand.

Why is the June LSAT on a Monday afternoon?

The June LSAT is the only one offered in the afternoon instead of the torturously early morning. But do you know why LSAC has provided this unexpected bounty to us unworthy paeans?

My investigation yielded no insight into the minds of the creators, so we must conjecture in order to grasp at divine knowledge.

Study, Eat, Study: Baked Goat Cheese and Garlic Bread

You’re going to have plenty of long days studying for the LSAT. Cooking yourself something delicious is a good way to take a break and stay alive. This baked goat cheese is easy enough to take you only a few minutes to prepare and tasty enough to make your life better. Plus, the combination of goat-derived dairy with the acidity from the tomatoes has been shown to stimulate brain function, according to some studies that probably exist.

Happy St. Paddy’s, lads and lassies!

The June LSAT is far enough away that you can get away with celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and even taking a day off studying if you choose. Tomorrow’s hangover will be but a distant memory come test day. If green beer is your thing (it shouldn’t be), go for it, or spike that kale smoothie if your tastes align more with the health nut set.

YouTube Xmas Top Ten

We’ve already berated you (kindly) about studying over the Holidays. However, in this post – our last until Christmas is over – we’d like to give you an early present. Here’s a whole bunch of great videos to watch with the family this Christmas. What better gift could you have than an excuse to shush obnoxious family members – I’m lookin’ at you, Uncle Jeff! – for interrupting Christmas programming?

Seasons Greetings from Blueprint

Much has been written on the meaning of the holidays. Thanksgiving is easy; it’s right there in the name, and it’s a secular holiday. Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa on the other hand… Is it the particular religious/spiritual underpinnings of each? Or something more universal? Spending time with friends and family? And what about the New Year? Is it looking back on the year that just ended, in order to learn its lessons? Is it celebrating a (fairly arbitrary) fresh start?
