J.K. Rowling, if you're listening...

If Harry Potter or Hermione Granger ever need to make some money in your upcoming books, here's a sure-fire get-rich-quick method: all they need to do is market the spell Briefus Escritorius, which causes a plumed quill pen to magically jam out a moot court brief, to hard-pressed 1L's around the globe.

No need to thank me, J.K--just send 1% of the royalties to me and we'll call it even.

We do moot court this week - two rounds on M and two more on W. Not really looking forward to it, as it is not graded - yet mandatory that we participate. With finals looming and my law-school future pretty tenuous - seems like a HUGE timesuck to me. However, I will squint my eyes and wiggle my nose and transport myself back to Panhandle high school classrooms and think like an extemporanous speaker. Yes, I will.

Just trying to blow off some steam--don't know why, but for some reason this place sometimes reminds of Hogwarts--maybe it's all the people sitting poring over books, maybe it's the constant referral to people by their level (rising/falling 1L, 2L, etc.), but it's probably all the secrecy and mysticism surrounding the legal writing assignments--surely a Dark Art if there ever was one. Anyway, I just kept getting this vision of a roll of parchment and a quill pen magically writing a brief all by itself.
