Happy Law Day!

So when I stopped at the public library this morning (what was I doing there, you ask? Because I'm DONE with all of my finals -- sorry fellow bitches -- and I was picking up some material to read for fun...) I discovered two things:

1) Apparently we can get free Westlaw access at the public library. There was free training there this morning. (So for those of you who could potentially be going through withdrawal this summer you can get your fix there...)

2) The free Westlaw training was in honor of today being Law Day. Apparently this is national holiday enacted into law by President Eisenhower back in the 50's. It is a "special day of celebration by the people of the United States" and people are invited "to observe Law Day, U.S.A., with appropriate ceremonies and in other appropriate ways, through public entities and private organizations and in schools and other suitable places."

Sounds like yet another excuse for law student to drink, huh? Screw finals. You'd be neglecting your duty to the ideals of justice and equality that founded this country if you didn't celebrate!

Lexis better get on it. Westlaw is still on my shit list since I have completed all of my trivia. I can't get a fix unless I play some triva.

Anyway, I guess I can look forward to Westlaw on my iPhone when it comes out... seriously, I could print to my law school library from anywhere in the world... exciting.

law day was an effort at anti-communist indoctrination, and no more than that, despite the varnish.
