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.

Justin Bieber launches devastating assault on logic.

A few weeks ago we considered how a variety of celebrities would fit in as attorneys. Aaron Rodgers, for example, who at one point considered foregoing his football ambitions to focus on getting into law school. Or George Clooney, whose wife is such a brilliant attorney that he may be able to pass the bar right now, just based on intellectual osmosis across the pillow. This week we consider Justin Bieber.
