Lambs to the Slaughter

The finals of the law school's Jenkins Moot Court Competition will be on April 4th. It looks like it's going to be an excellent competition, but I'm not sure if I'm going to attend. I get the feeling that my classmates would rather not have a packed crowd watching them. The nerves have to be running high considering the panel of judges that they are judging them. Judges Cudahy, Easterbrook, and Kanne of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals have kindly taken time out of their schedules to oversee the finals. Wow, oral arguments before Judge Easterbrook. He's... intimidating during oral argument. Think Scalia but not as cuddly. I have a few mp3's of 7th Circuit cases and he's a tough customer. Maybe he won't be as tough on the law students... yeah, right. Good luck, gentlemen.

Man, were I a law student, I wouldn't miss it. Think of the opportunity to not only learn, but to possibly see blood splatter all over the wall! Sorry about the blood reference, flashbacks to Freddy and Jason. You do know who they are right? It'll make me feel less old if you do! LOL

yeah steve - i would urge you to come with and get a glimpse of the Honorable Judge Easterbrook. I also enjoy the pure sound of his voice online when I can (God bless those that are fortunate to have him and posner on the same panel) but there has to be something more to actually seeing him work.

Billiam: Of course I know who Freddy and Jason are. I'm not that young. I am also the proud owner of the Nightmare on Elm Stret DVD box set.

Tim: Uh oh. Law school peer pressure.

Okay, as of right now, I'm leaning towards going.

then again, i have a blinka class that night, so who knows?

Just tell him that you've got money riding on it and you need to be there.
