We were studying Employment Law in the library the other day–dibs on carrel 3-34–when two things occurred to us: first, this prior edition, Dutch-language Employment Law casebook was cheaper but is definitely harder to read; and second, there are painted portraits all over the library, but we haven’t a god damned clue who any of them are.

In their first bipartisan gesture in years, the American Constitution Society and Federalist Society are working together to ensure that liberal and conservative law students don’t accidentally agree with one another. Read the rest of this entry »

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan visited Ohio State today to participate in a Program on Law & Leadership discussion with Moritz Dean Alan Michaels. It appeared at first that Kagan did her homework before visiting the Buckeye State, responding to Dean Michaels’s introductory question with an understated Bosa Shrug. The capacity crowd laughed, cheered, and whooped, and one faculty member even proclaimed, “Man she fucking gets us!” Read the rest of this entry »

Law schools across the country utilize cold calling, a method where professors randomly call on students to answer questions about the day’s reading assignment. For the most part, it’s not so bad! The questions usually aren’t too tough and you can get by with a basic understanding of the cases. Sometimes you can even get through a cold call only responding to questions with non-answers and platitudes (cheers, Erik Stewart)! But if I had to pick the worst part about being cold called, it’s getting nervous, passing out, and waking up 41 years later in a Columbus-area hospital. Read the rest of this entry »

The law school walls are thick and windows are few but, out there in the real world, it’s football season!

We get it! Many of you went to small, liberal arts, schools where Saturdays consisted of drum circles and slacklining. Some of you actually studied on Saturdays (and look where that got you). Others went to schools where football teams are commonly referred to as “bad” (welcome, Bearcats fans!).

That means most of you probably have no idea what to expect this weekend for the first Buckeye home game of the year. Not to worry: The Hearsay has your back. Just follow these tips to look and feel like a natural born Buckeye!  Read the rest of this entry »

Wow is it Thursday already? Man, time flies! Just think, 1Ls: in just 6 short weeks you will stop learning meaningless theory and focus on more important things to eventually forget. 2Ls and 3Ls? Only 15 weeks until you wish you had used this exact moment to read for Employment Law.

But enough with future regret. We had a great couple of days! And it would be a gosh darn shame not to highlight the most important happenings of the week. Here are some headlines from around Moritz after week one:  Read the rest of this entry »

Broidy Hawaiian Shirt

Days removed from the start of fall semester, 3L Daniel Briody was scheduled for an on-campus interview with attorneys from Ernest & Shapiro.

Dear classmates:

Hey! Damn glad to meet you. We’re The Hearsay, Moritz’s #1 News Source. We’re tickled you’ve decided to launch tens of thousands of dollars into a seemingly endless chasm with us for the next three years forever.

Allow us to introduce The Hearsay by answering some FAQs.  Read the rest of this entry »

We will be the first to admit that there are a lot of things that law school guarantees:

  1. Holistic, unassailable, understanding of legal theories and their real-world application;
  2. The ability to compose completely airtight legal memoranda; and
  3. High-paying jobs.

But listen, everyone; there are also some benefits to joining a scholarly publication. LinkedIn, Cybele Smith, and 4/5 dentists agree that if you didn’t join a journal then you you’ve already committed legal hari kari and you will never be featured on Discovery, the Moritz Newsletter.

The good news is that one publication is still taking applications: The Hearsay.  Read the rest of this entry »
