Law Library display for July 2017: Popular Culture and the Law

It’s the summer, and that means time to read for pleasure (maybe at the beach, poolside, or on your way to some vacation destination), go to the movies, or catch up on your favorite shows.*
 
With that in mind, the Law Library’s July display case is dedicated to Popular Culture and the Law, so please come by and check it out.

If you’re taking the Popular Culture and the Law course with Professor Simpson-Wood this summer or in the fall, we have several of the books in the display case in our Reserve Collection, and we also have a wide selection of legal-themed movies on DVD for you to check out.

 
Pop quiz time! What are YOUR favorite legal-themed movies, TV shows, novels, documentaries, podcasts, etc.? Let us know!
 

* Unless you’re studying for the Bar Exam, that is. In which case, keep doing what you’re doing, know we’re rooting for you, and remember you’ll have plenty of time to catch up on pop culture in a few more weeks!

FINAL WEEK to apply for PAID Law Library Fellowship!

This is the FINAL WEEK to apply for the Trammell/Ahlers/Studwell Law Library Fellowship. If you enjoy legal research, love libraries, and want to learn everything about academic law libraries from YOUR Barry Law Library staff, this would be a perfect opportunity for you.

This is a six-week, full-time, PAID fellowship to be scheduled over the summer.  We have had three successful Law Library Fellows so far, and we look forward to working with our fourth.

Apply at http://tinyurl.com/zhwysk3, and feel free to ask us any questions you might have. The application deadline is March 31st, THIS FRIDAY!

Congratulations to Barry Law Professors Morley and Edwards!

We are lucky to have an amazing faculty here at Barry University School of Law.  Not just great and inspiring professors in our classrooms and clinics, they are true scholars in every way — prolific authors and respected legal experts who often gain national exposure for themselves and for Barry.

Recently, Professor Michael Morley was quoted in an Associated Press article on Fortune.com:”What Happens if a Disputed Election Goes to the 8-Member Supreme Court?”

And Professor Benjamin Edwards contributed a new article to the University of Oxford Business Law blog: “Self-Regulation’s Dark Side.”

Make sure you congratulate Professors Morley and Edwards when you see them on campus!  Professors, you bring honor to our school and our Barry community.
