The SPCA Dog Therapy program is coming back to the Law Library beginning Monday, April 25th. Dog therapy is designed to be a fun stress-reliever for our busy students, a gift of some happy-go-lucky play with a furry friend as relief from studying. So take a break and let one of these trained, friendly dogs help you forget all about the law for a few minutes.
Our doggie “therapists” will be located on the fourth floor of the 200 McAllister building in the Library. Students are welcome to sign up for 10-minute stress break sessions. All dogs are friendly and trained and accompanied by experienced SPCA volunteers. Sign-up sheets and more information can be found at the Library circulation desk. Read here about the science of eye to eye contact between humans and dogs.

From the Washington Post, Feb. 9, 2016:
“War is brewing over the most boring piece of intellectual property imaginable: the “Bluebook,” the 580-page quasi-authoritative source of proper legal citation formats published by the Harvard Law Review, described by Adam Liptak of the New York Times a few months ago as “a comically elaborate thicket of random and counterintuitive rules about how to cite judicial decisions, law review articles and the like [that] is both grotesque and indispensable.
Students at NYU Law School have prepared a new, streamlined, open-access citation system and gotten it ready for publication…”
