Dispatches from legal Facebook-land

A recent throwaway post on Legal Cheek‘s Facebook page — featuring, it should be noted, the incorrect spelling of “judgment” — has so far hauled in almost 2,000 likes and nearly 200 shares, while drawing 181 comments.


The conclusion from this: law students up and down the country desperately want members of the judiciary to get to the point. The matter has even spilled over onto Twitter, where one law student revealed her dream.

Now judges — and we know you’re reading in the Supreme Court — if you’re in agreement, please don’t proceed to write a 50-page reasoning about your views on the matter.
