C. You should go to Columbia Law School. Why? Because Amal Clooney will be a guest lecturer there. (Amal apparently can’t get into Yale either.) Above the Law
D. According to complaints in class action lawsuits recently filed in California, New York, and Florida, a brand of lip balm endorsed by Kim K and Britney Spears causes rashes and blisters. No comment. Chicago Tribune

Dream Professors: Celebrity Spouse Edition

When I found out Amal Clooney was teaching at Columbia Law, I made it my mission to spot her on campus—George has nothing on me, after all. Thus far, I have been unsuccessful (much to my chagrin). Part of the reason may be that Columbia students are apparently forbidden from talking about her class. Because of my disappointment, I started hoping that maybe a few other celebrity spouses guest lecturing at Columbia would increase my odds of crossing paths with one.

Alexi Ashe
Seth Meyers’s wife, Alexi Ashe, is a human rights lawyer and Assistant District Attorney. I would love to see her guest lecture at Columbia in a criminal law class. For one thing, I’m not a huge fun of my criminal law professor right now, so anyone seems like a possible upgrade.
