Library Loot March 8th 2011

by Sarah Prosory 8. March 2011 09:00

We know everyone is on Spring Break... and perhaps that gives you some time to check out the Law Library's AMAZING legal DVD collection (located along the west wall behind the reference desk)! View a listing of the DVDs in our collection here. Read a previous blog post about our legal DVD collection here.

For students, DVDs circulate for 7 days with no renewals. Students may check out up to 5 DVDs at one time. Be sure to watch My Cousin Vinny, The Paper Chase, or any of the many legal TV shows we have in the collection, such as Law & Order (naturally)! We even have the Academy Award-nominated & winner of 3 Oscars (for film editing, music-original score, and writing- adapted screenplay), The Social Network!

Following this tangent, I bring you this week's Library Loot puzzle- a crossword all about Legal Cinema! Be sure to read the instructions carefully!

Instructions: For this crossword puzzle, you will need to use your legal research skills to determine the answer. Open the PDF document below to view the crossword puzzle. Please print the document and fill in the squares with the correct answers. The first person to turn in the correctly filled out crossword puzzle to the Circulation Desk is the winner.
