Front page of the NY Times: "What They Don't Teach in Law School: Lawyering."
Front Page of the NY Times Magazine: "Teaching Good Sex".
And they accuse the comments section on the blog over the weekend of being weird.
Law and Sex. The question is how much are our readers influencing the editors of the NY Times?
FIU MOOT COURT
They are teaching good lawyering at FIU Law School. Over the weekend Professors HT Smith and Scott Fingerhut ran their annual Moot Court Competition. Judges from the 3rd DCA and the REGJB took time out of their weekends and presided over the trials while dozens and dozens of lawyers from the PD, SAO and private practice attended the trials as "jurors" rating the law student participants. We heard via a few emails (some apparently while the competition was in full swing) it was a great success, and congrats go to the law students and thanks to the Judges (it's almost the end of the year, we need to be nice to robe wearers at least once) and lawyers who gave selflessly of their time.
Anybody going to trial with two and half days of work scheduled for the week? Clerks and courts should close Wednesday at noon if tradition holds and the chief judge issues an order pardoning a local turkey and court and clerk personnel.
Anybody ever try a Turducken for Thanksgiving? It's a turkey stuffed with a chicken which is stuffed with a duck. Throw in some sausage and cornbread and it takes 12 hours in the oven. We saw one being prepared. Looks amazing.
See You In Court. Enjoy the holiday week.
