Little of This, Little of That

* I don’t have a favorite law school course, but at least I have a least favorite. LRW is important, I know, but that doesn’t mean I find it enjoyable. And it’s just different, too. The others have a final exam worth 100% of your grade, but LRW is divided up into sections. This semester, our grade comes from three different sources, and yesterday afternoon was the first one – a two-hour exam that will count for 20% of our grade. I literally have no idea how I did on it, but at least it is over.

* Today, through the grace of God, our section only has one class (Criminal Law). Instead of enjoying today as basically a day off, I’m going to spend it all at a symposium. I would question my sanity, but the symposium is on Sports Arbitration, hosted by the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution here at Pepperdine. Straus is the main reason I chose Pepperdine, and I have always loved sports, so I’m looking forward to today. You can read about the line-up HERE. I’ll try to give a report tomorrow.

* Speaking of sports, it has been nice the last couple of days to see that Spring Training has begun. The Cardinals are playing down in Florida – tied the Marlins in their first game, and lost to the Orioles yesterday. You’ll probably be subjected to Redbird updates from time to time.

* For those who knew our Erica’s first car (that she fondly named, Bertha), it has now been sold. Kinda weird how losing a lump of mint green metal can make you feel like the family dog just died.

* Hillary told us that the choreographer of the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics taught dance in her P.E. class yesterday. Another “only in Malibu” moment.

* With all the job cutbacks around campus, we are ecstatic to discover that Jody sort of got promoted. Her position had been funded by a grant, but now it has been made a permanent position. And she is getting relocated within the Tyler Campus Center so she can interact with the public even more. I’m a little biased, but I think it’s a smooth move on Pepperdine’s part.
