Me and Law School are Trying to Patch Things Up

As many of you know, Law School and I have been working out some issues. I think we might be pushing out of the tunnel and into the light!

Law School Love Letters

October 1st, 2007
Dear Law School.

This will be the last GMail I write to you.
I think it’s best that we stop seeing each other. We tried to make it work, but I really think it’s best if we just make a clean break. It’s the only way that we will reasonably be made whole. Haha. I will miss these little, legal jokes with you.

Fondly,
Sam

P.S. I know people always say it, but I mean it when I say it’s not you, it’s me. I hope you end up with someone great.

The Law School Disambiguation Post

Aunty Carol wrote me an email last night and explained that some people were confused about where I was heading and could I give the Where, When, and Why? You know, in life.

Why law?

A. Why not law? Or, what if Why law, but add wherefore and how come. Or, same facts as before, but why is spelled ‘Y’. Or, what is the level of intent of ‘law’ if ‘Why’ succeeds it; and what is the brightline for negligence in such a situation?

B. As part of a corporate mixer, a staff member and senior editor read our astrological charts. When she read mine, she did not read cold reading answers (e.g., I sense you have some troubles at home or with a family Continue reading

S.I. Newhouse Center for Law and Justice

So if the industrial corridor of Jersey is really a toxic paradise, then Rutgers is definitely the oasis. You would expect an urban campus to be just a couple three story buildings that look like all the other buildings in the area. You’d be wrong. The campus itself is very nice, and the law school is by far the coolest building on campus. 4 stories tall the front of it is plated with glass and even on a gloomy, rainy morning, the natural light was abundant.
