A Spirited Look at the Law School Curriculum
by Victoria Sutton
Halloween Law is a creepy but fun view of law school study starting with the first year. Looking at the law through the lens of Halloween proves the old rule that truth is stranger than fiction. Halloween cases that conjure up issues in constitutional law, criminal law, tort law, property law and contract law introduce you to the first year curriculum. If you survive the first year, you can move on to several upper level courses for those who dare --- employment law, oil and gas law and lots of local government law creep into the Halloween Law experience. The Halloween Bar Exam is a scary finish to this unique introduction to law school that will leave you ready to deal with any scary case.
