Congrats and some advice for moving on...

Congratulations on formally finishing the exam for this course AND don't give another thought to the substance of the exam or your substantive performance for (at least) the next few days.  After ALL your exams are complete, I will have an open thread for comments on the whole exam season, but right now you should keep in mind the reality that your most important exam is your next one. 

Given that your next exam is not until Friday, I also have a few recommendations for moving on:

1.  Catch up on sleep and/or time with family ASAP before going back into deep exam mode

2.  Go out to see or rent a movie that is either a good comedy that helps you forget serious stuff or a moving drama that helps you remember your current worries are pretty minor.   Since I mentioned the The Blues Brothers in one review session, that's a good possibility for the comedy.  The last few winners of the Oscar for best picture, The Hurt Locker and Slumdog Millionaire, should fit the bill on the drama front.  And, if you want a great movie that will make you think really hard about something other that law, I always love to recommend Momento.

3.  Please let me know either through comments here or via e-mail or in person whether and how you would like me to keep this blog going in the weeks and months ahead.  I would be happy to keep providing snippets of interesting real substantive criminal law cases, though I would also be happy and eager to use this space for student support as well (e.g., posting notices/links about job opportunities and advice columns like this one).

Congrats again and good luck finishing your last two exams (which I hope will both seem easy after you have no survived mine)!

We've had a few different posts about movies lately, so here is the link to the Golden Globe Award Nominations:


I'm looking forward to spending some time over Christmas break seeing the movies nominated for best picture (both drama and comedy). But for now...it's all about civ pro and torts!

If your able to stomach any more law over break after the hellish week we're having I suggest people go see the movie The Next Three Days. I saw it in theaters a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was pretty good! I don't know how realistic it was, but it was definitely interesting.

Here's the IMDB site for it- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1458175/

Also - for people who are new to the Columbus area who are as broke as I am waiting for the next loan disbursement. Here's the website for the Dollar Theater that's about 10 minutes from school off of Bethel. Cheap thing to do over break if you're in Columbus.
