Weekly Law School Roundup #1

Welcome to the first edition of the newly-revived Weekly Law School Roundup! I had every intention of having this up first thing this morning, but a case of dance fever caught me up last night and I didn't get home until nearly 4a.m., so I'm getting a bit of a late start. I've never done this before, but I guess I just jump right in.

Have you ever wondered which Supreme Court justice gets the most laughs? Well, Shangri Law has the answers, plus the annotated Scalia bobblehead.

How to Law School has everything you ever wanted to know about Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. Stockton writes that "Holmes is probably most famous for his mustache. Holmes detractors claim his facial hair lacked the robust jocularity of Stephen Johnson Field's beard but many saw a sly, sardonic intelligence in Holmes' finally coiffed and dangerously sharp mustache." Who knew?

Elle Woods over at Legally Blonde brings us a day in her life working at Bill, More & Hours.

Perhaps the most pressing question of the new year...Legally Intoxicated wants to know where his flying car?

Have you ever spent an entire semester toiling away in the coal mines of law school only to get the exact same grade as you did that time you spent the entire night before the exam throwing back sake bombs and then you showed up to the exam clutching a commercial outline, a cursory knowledge of the law, and wondering where you left your shoes? Well, Strict Scrutiny feels your pain.

Under the heading "Oh my GOD, I've so been there!", I bring to you...Matt Schuh liveblogging his wait for the cable guy.

Now, I'll admit this one was way over my head...I can smell people trying to hide math by using words a million miles away. But still, Ari David Kopolovic at The Distillery has a post involving game theory and when you should help your fellow law student.

The Namby Pamby Law Student has a sleepwalking dog. Weird!

Bonus Link -- it's not really related to law school per se, but Underneath Their Robes is back!

So, I hope that you enjoy the Roundup. You will be able to find it next Sunday at Evan Schaeffer's Legal Underground. Keep those emails and links coming! I REALLY appreciated the help this week and I found a whole slew of new blogs that I'm excited to start reading on a more regular basis!!!
