A Fact Pattern For Next Year's MPRE

A billboard went up recently in downtown Chicago with two photos on it, one on either side: the torsoes of a man and a woman, both super hot. In the middle, in giant text (the sign is reportedly "three times the size of a regular billboard") it reads "Life is Short; Get a Divorce." See ABC's coverage here.

Any thoughts? The lawyer who sponsored the ad has evidently taken a lot of flak, but she's promising an even racier one next month.

Pretty much consistent with the rest of the firm's advertising: http://www.chicagowomenatlaw.com/corriBio.html

Hey! Let's play a game. Name your favorite salacious ballbuster -- in history, literature, or pop culture.

Hey, Armen, can you post this for me up on the main page?

Join an Inn of Court!

The Earl Warren American Inn of Court is looking for seven good Boalties (rising 3Ls or 2Ls) to be Inn members for next school year. You will meet monthly in the evening at 6:00-9:00 pm on the third Wednesday of each month in downtown Oakland. The annual fee is very modest, about $150, which covers the seven or so restaurant meals. For one month during the year, your team will put on a presenation, which means you will put in about 12 hours in preparation. (At the EWAIC, the presenations are a little theatrical, so have some willingness to play a part in a short skit.) Otherwise, you will simply attend presentations, meet and greet judges and lawyers, and enjoy a nice meal. Attendance is important, so if you join, you are making a commitment to show up. Unfortunately, the Inn has given us a shorter fuse than usual, so please contact John Steele at john.steele@fr.com if you are interested. It's a great way to get out there in the legal community as a 3L.
