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.
Wish I knew contracts like Kingsfield.
This isn’t quite like Legally Blonde.
Helen Palsgraf shouldn’t have stood there.
Student focused. Eckstein prepared. Challenge accepted.
Where I became a caffeine junkie.
Come to our meeting, free food!
Law school: life experience, life changing.
Yes, overwhelming; yet, so extremely rewarding.
Challenging and new; focus, get through.
Shaping legal landscapes from grass clippings.
Coffee read read read read coffee.
The law is a fickle beast.
I’m having 1L of a ride.
Law—compromise of mind and heart.
More you learn. Less you know.
