Tailgating with CLE

Grilling, drinking, socializing with friends – these things go along with tailgating before football games. At one Indiana law school, CLE classes are also part of the mix.

At Notre Dame Law School, two-credit CLE programs are offered before select home football games. If you can pull yourself away from tailgating for a couple hours, the programs run from 8 to 10 a.m. and include a continental breakfast at 7:30 a.m. A look at the upcoming schedule shows topics on intercollegiate athletics, issues in professional sports, and the law of death and dying today.

For 75 bucks, you get a breakfast and CLE credit; but there’s more! Participants – attorneys, graduates, and non-graduates of the Notre Dame Law School – can purchase two football tickets. Being Notre Dame football, of course supplies are limited, as tickets to their games are usually highly coveted.

Several friends of mine went to college at Notre Dame and I know how rabid ND fans can be. Tickets used to be pretty hard to come by, so I wonder how many alumni and fans take advantage of the programs to score football tickets.

Check out Notre Dame Law School’s site about the continuing legal education for more info on the dates and programs.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
