Law Student Gets Married in the Morning, and goes to Legal Writing in the Afternoon

January 12th, 2010

From Legal Writing Prof Blog (H/T Josh M. on FB)

I just finished giving a guest lecture to second semester students in a legal writing class taught by Professor Ruth Hargrove at California Western School of Law in San Diego. (She’s pictured here. Many of you met her at the legal writing luncheon in New Orleans.)
One of her students GOT MARRIED this morning and then went to her legal writing class at 1:15 p.m.
Our other students will now have to come up with really good reasons for missing a class. Getting married is no longer enough! And it seems to me that Professor Hargrove may have found the most dedicated student of legal writing ever!

Wow. Wow. Wow. Not even your humble correspondent, who thoroughly enjoys law school, would ever do this (and definitely not for legal writing).
