Our Mazillion Dollar Makeover

My fair lady of the stacks shares a few words about upcoming Boalt Hall renovations:

At the Town Hall Meeting [ ] some of you expressed hope that we would be able to upgrade the Boalt Hall facility. As Dean Edley noted [adept fielding of the question at 10:39, here], we have already begun work on this, and we intend to step up our renovation activities this summer (you'll be hearing from us soon about the details). In the meantime, we thought you might like to see some before and after shots of a few of the spaces that we have already worked on. (Note that the photos don't always do justice to the changes. If you are a 1L you'll have to ask a 2L or 3L just how uncomfortable the 1951 fiberglass, fixed seating in 100, 105 and 110 actually was).

She also shares some before-and-after photos of projects already completed.

I gotta tell you, compared to the old UCC at the University of Idaho, Boalt Hall is the lap of luxury. I'm happy as a clam.

Also, hat-tip shiny gold star to Boalt grad (from back when Boalties were from Boalt) Larry Frankel, who is the ACLU's new Legislative Counsel.

I particularly enjoyed the "You have no idea!" laugh by 2Ls, 3Ls, and law school staff, in response to this question.

This was the same 1L who, during 9th Circuit Day, asked the 4 minute question about dividing the circuit, ending with "...so...have you heard anything about that?"

I think this guy is (unintentionally) hilarious.

Not really that cool 5:07. The 9th Ciruit Day thing wasn't bad. He asked for the judges' opinion on it, he got it, that was it. Don't anonymously exaggerate.

Oh and I'll also speculate that 5:07 is probably an LRW or WOA TA since they recognize 1Ls.

618: good call on 'not cool.'

besides, they were different different people.

I don't care if they are different people, but the 9th Circuit split question really was pretty funny. I mean, no offense, but if anyone has heard about that discussion, it would likely be 9th Circuit judges.

I could be wrong.

I remember that question about why we should even have a supreme court as pretty amazing too.
