When I was contemplating how to write a post on legal TV shows, something dawned on me: Aside from delightful Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler-filled SVU re-runs, I don’t really watch legal TV shows. Cops shows? Sure. I live to see what cheesy one-liner will end the opening scene of CSI:Miami. You know, the one Horatio will say right before you hear this. Sitcoms? No prob. Nothing and no one brings me quite the same joy that Ron Swanson can. But legal TV shows have never really scratched any of my itches (aside from a brief tryst I had with The Practice back in high school). That said, I did some digging and found a few legal TV shows that both you and I might want to give a shot in the New Year (assuming they get/got renewed). Read Entire Article…

Enough with the all too serious LSAT and law school advice of the past month. It’s time to strap in for some funny. And nothing says “holiday cheer” like a good ol’ frivolous lawsuit . . . or three. The depths to which people are willing to stoop in the name of entitlement never ceases to amaze, or appall. And with that, I give you three of the most frivolous lawsuits of 2011.
Enter Richard Katz, Esq. That’s right — lawyers abuse the legal system in the names of themselves as well as their clients. Mr. Katz purchased a membership at a very, very expensive health club with the promise of free breakfast (in addition to gold-plated barbells and locker room butlers).

So, remember a while back when that chick was doing the whole hunger strike thing because she went to a fourth-tier law school and was under-employed? That was all for the purpose of something called law school transparency, which is basically a three-fold idea:
1. There aren’t as many law jobs as there were.
2. Law schools are saying that most of their graduates are finding employment.
3. These two don’t correlate.
There is an awful lot of fear mongering out there right now- a record number of people taking the LSAT, more competition for increasingly expensive law school seats, and even unemployed law graduates going on hunger strikes. It’s enough to make a pre-law wonder, ”Is law school worth it?” Here are five reasons law school is a worthy investment during the economic apocalypse. 1. Law School Takes 3 Years: A lot can happen in three years. Just think of all that has happened in the last 3- Obama was elected, Justin Bieber was born, roughly 14 vampires movies were made. Yes, it’s not the best job market for law grads, but professional jobs are recovering faster than most. It’s still too early to say when the economy will fully recover, but legal careers are certainly not among the most threatened. Those taking the LSAT, applying, or starting law school this fall need not worry about the job market being as difficult as it is now.
The last video game I played with any kind of verve, regularity, or excellence was Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo when I was ten (and at that, I was a golden god), so I might not be the best guy to opine on this subject, but here goes.
Recently, in West Virginia, a judge by the name of Joseph R. Carico was discovered to be in an illicit video-gaming relationship with a West Virginian felon named Jeremy Hubbard, who had appeared in his court.
