From the Mouths of 1Ls: More Six-Word Stories

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about a challenge to write six-word stories about law school or the law.  That post inspired many creative six-word stories, which you can read in the comments to that post.  The post and its idea were picked up by other blogs, including the Wall Street Journal law blog, the Wall Street Journal print edition on Monday, September 23, 2013, Above the Law, TaxProf blog, and the ABA Law News Now.

Below are some of the six-word stories submitted by my first-year legal analysis, writing & research students. I hope you’ll add your own in the comments.

New analysis, old logic, law school.
