Law School Applications Are Up …

At the risk of sounding like I’m trying too hard to relate to the youth of America, I’ve been playing a lot of battle royale video games lately. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this new gaming craze, a battle royale is basically the same concept as the hunger games — a number of players are dropped onto an enclosed space, which shrinks over time, and they attempt to survive until all the other players are eliminated.

Logical Reasonings / 11.2.18

A. Yesterday was “love your lawyer” day, which may seem like a giant thirst trap, but you have to commend attorneys for recognizing that people could only possibly muster up love for their attorney once a year. American Lawyers Public Image Association

B. One person who’s almost certainly not loving his lawyers today is the president. A federal judge denied his attorneys’ request to halt the emoluments lawsuit brought against him by the attorneys general from D.C. and Maryland. Washington Post

C. Also, six Honduran migrants sued the President over his current border policies. NBC News

D. For your daily dose of judicial whimsy, here are a bunch children dressed up like Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for Halloween. Above the Law

E. 78% of Americans support a term limit for Supreme Court Justices. Maybe they didn’t see those RBG costumes. The Hill

Dispatches from Law School: Meeting the “Gunner”

Despite the warnings I heard before law school, the great majority of law students I’ve met are thoughtful, interesting and supportive people. The “gunner” stereotype of a law student is essentially the opposite: a self-important student who sits at the front of every class, takes up class time with their own philosophizing on the law, and ensures that everybody knows just how much they’re studying. My experience has been that the “gunner” rarely exists in its full form, but you do see different pieces of the gunner personality in people you meet in law school.
