Why are we all gathered here this morning -- in the lovely Lubar Faculty Library at the University of Wisconsin Law School?
Well, for one thing, there are doughnuts.
Lots and lots of doughnuts. (I'm only photographing the leftovers!)
And Ralph Cagle is showing us clips from movies about law and lawyers.
See? It's Joe Pesci in "My Cousin Vinnie":
We do a "Coffee & Doughnuts" session on one subject or another most Thursdays during the semester. The idea is to show we're capable of thinking and talking about something other than law. Back at the beginning of the semester, I took part in one about blogging. So, at least for those students who are able to make it in early enough in the morning, we try to amuse you and ply you with sugar-glazed goodness.
