What's the Kirkland thing?
"I'm a genius, but I'm a misunderstood genius."
"What's misunderstood about you?"
"Nobody thinks I'm a genius."

"A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day."

"A natural lull" video.

Why?  Are you prepared to defend mock fashion court proceedings?  No harm done if you are.

I'll defend the mock fashion court thing. I like the abject silliness of it, especially Strahi's response. Stuff like that makes me appreciate the law school.

Okay, cool.  I think the abject silliness is why I put it on par with the Kirkland video, but I can see someone reading it the other way.

My favorite line still is:

Defendant does not lecture. Defendant uses the Socratic method.
Juicy: UChicago

It sounds so reasonable when you say it.

Holy crap, they redesigned the law school website.

I don't like it. Too much noise (although I guess thats not uncommon).

Bleh, the "Page Not Found" title is "Motion Denied": http://www.law.uchicago.edu/students/photo-guide.html

Too cute by a half.

I also like:

But defendant is of the firm belief that plaintiff Elkinsí fashion sense ďainít all that.Ē

(mainly because, in my head, I'm picturing Strahi saying that out loud)

You clearly clicked the same link I did.

And I agree, although perhaps I'll get used to the design.  It's not like the old one was great...

I'm hoping the schedule is in something other than a PDF so you can click links to class descriptions and whatnot.

Hooray for the newly selected Chicago Scalia clerk.

Hopefully chicago gets a few more that term as well.
