"What would James Madison do if he was staring down a four-hour, closed book Constitutional Law final?"
"I mean besides, you know, not writing the Constitution. I like to think he would have just broken down and started destroying stuff rather than confront the reality of his own intellectual inadequacy and poor post-graduate educational decisions." Quoting again from Look, We Can Either Study for Our Law School Finals, or We Can Bring About the Violent Dissolution of the Legal System by Spencer Moreau:
Exams are less than a week away, and the way I look at it, we’ve only got two options: we can either buckle down and hit the books harder than we ever have in our entire lives, or else can can attempt to bring about the violent downfall of the institution of rule of law in the United States of America.
And between you, me, and this three-hundred page Crim. Law outline I got from a 2L, that second one just sounds more viable.
Hope finals went well enough! A bit hat tip to Sarah Glassmeyer's tweet for this gem.
Speaking of "what would James Madison do?", see today's earlier LLB post on the Brookings Institution's new book, Constitution 3.0: Freedom and Technological Change. [JH]
