A. This Emory Law School professor is sure that a top 20 law school is going to shut down in the next few years. She seems to be implying pretty strongly that it’s Minnesota. Forbes

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.

Happy St. LSATrick’s Day

In the year 1995 the Republic of Ireland began a campaign to use St. Patrick’s Day to showcase Ireland and its rich culture. The government thus established an event called the St. Patrick’s Festival, with the stated aim:

“To project, internationally, an accurate image of Ireland as a creative, professional, sophisticated country with wide appeal.”

And boy have they succeeded. Today nary a soul in the western world is unaware of the Irish’s St. Patty’s Day shenanigans. With phosisticated displaysof professional Guiness-guzzling, and creatively verdant colorizations of things never intended to be anything close to a shade of green, the projected image of Ireland is, I think we can all agree, widely appealing and superlatively accurate.
