Some good news for prospective law students -- today's Wall Street Journal (page B4) reports that with law school applications on the decline, law schools are becoming increasingly open to the idea of offering scholarships. And, you thought just football players could get a free ride. The Journal reports that embryonic law students -- showing the acumen that will make them sharp attorneys -- are even haggling with schools to get better financial packages.  Way to go!! Now, if someone could just ... [click here to read more]

To those of you who were sane and only sat for one Bar Exam, congratulations, your long road has finally come to an end. But to the overachievers who found it necessary to to flex your legal muscles in multiple states, the light at the end of the tunnel shines brightly for you. Unfortunately the state's set many of their Bar systems up in such ways that there is no reciprocity in areas where it would make complete sense. Much like the College Football bowl system, everyone hate how it works ... [click here to read more]
So you've finished part of the bar exam. You're either relieved to be half way done, or already depressed because you feel that you're on the path to failing. Either way, congratulations are in order, just for getting this far. But if you do end up failing, just remember you are in good company: Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; John F.

We at Comedians at Law want to offer our congratulations to England's Bradley Wiggins, who won this year's Tour de France, ending a 75-year drought for Britain.  Mr. Wiggins' success is all the more remarkable given that he is vehemently anti-doping in a sport marred by doping practices. The Tour de France is a grueling race of more than 2100 miles spanning more than 3 weeks.  In that sense it is akin to the period of bar review and bar examination, except that bar review lasts longer, and the ...

Recently, a man was denied entry into the U.S. due to his gang related tattoos. The person in question insisted his tattoos were personal to him. One was a large tattoo on his back of the grim reaper, a symbol that is central to certain South American gangs. The message here is, think about your tattoos folks. And not just for the legal ramifications, obviously if you have a picture of the angel-of-death on your back people will look at you a little funny. Clearly, tattoos have become more commonplace, ...
