Trained by Socratic Assault. Professors Acquitted.

sixwordcontest

Roger Gonzales, a Hamline law student with a lyrical bent, rose to the challenge posed by the Legal Research and Writing department to write a "story" summing up his first semester at law school. Concise writers had an edge since the "story" could only include six words. Roger's winning entry: "Trained by Socratic assault. Professors acquitted" was awarded with a t-shirt emblazoned with his story. First Runner-up was Alexandra Raspa for her story, "Excuse me, I am having issues!" and second runner-up status was awarded to Sean Pratt for "My wife should sue for damages." All literary legal students are excellent candidates for the new JD/MFA joint degree program at Hamline University (www.hamline.edu/law/jdmfa).
