St. Patrick's Day

If you are looking for a low-key way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I have an idea for you.  Head over to the Law Library’s DVD collection and check out The Irish R.M. This series aired on PBS in the late 80’s and follows a retired British military man who becomes a Resident Magistrate in rural Ireland.  The series takes place in 1897 and aired 18 episodes over three seasons.  DVD’s of the first two seasons can be found in the Law Library.  The bonus to watching this series is that it was taped in County Kildare so while you won’t be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland you can still enjoy views of the countryside.

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.
