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.

What’s LSAT got to do with it?

As you may have heard, bar passage rates aren’t looking stellar this year, and a lot of people are trying to figure out why and what to do about it.

So you settled your dreams on becoming a NASA engineer. Hey, as long as you worked on a piece of something that made it into space, it would be like you made it too. Then you burned out of first-year calculus, so you switched to poli sci, and now you find yourself at law school googling “space law.”
