He got in a fight with some twitter troll, and he said "now that's LOL!!!" unironically.

holy shit, the guy he picked a fight with has his website on twitter as --LinkRemoved--

If you think, "surely that is not missouri drone law as in like Obama will kill you with a predator drone law" you would be wrong.

A sample post:
City of Saint Louis police "say the owner of a DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter found
damaged May 5 after crashing into the Metropolitan Square building at
211 North Broadway contacted police after seeing news reports of the
discovery" and has been identified.

Being unfamiliar with the First Amendment which assures the right to acquire information, the Post Dispatch does not understand why this was OK, but really it was.

The University of Missouri needs to get its Drone Journalism program up and running so that cub reporters will have respect for the First Amendment and the right to acquire information using technology.

No. I took antitrust and never took any other business-related class in law school.

Incoming 1L here...
I have to be out of town one weekend between late July and early September 2015. Considering the Loyola Patent Fair, OCI, a summer job, start of 2L, etc., what do you think is the best weekend for having some free time?

Is Horwitch as evil as the historical grade distribution shows? Want to take SecReg but apparently Horwitch curved the class to a 3.23 for that year and gave out multiple Ds and Cs...

Am I better off just waiting for someone else to teach it or was that year an outlier? TYIA

Thanks! I thought there might be a free weekend in August between OCI and the start of classes. Would that also work?

Weekends should generally be fine, but if you're doing callbacks in other parts of the country, the travel can get to be difficult.

Do you have to plan so far in advance. My year there was a whole week or two between Loyola and OCI starting. I took a weeklong vacay during it.

I heard that was not the case last year. But her class is def not super full of gunners. With Allen, it probably is.

Thanks all for your help. I'm planning so far in advance because deposits and reservations have to be made in the next few weeks. I'll try contacting NU and Loyola PLIP to see if they've set 2015 dates. (If anyone has that info please PM me. I tried looking online, but didn't have any luck.)

I liked Horwich when I took SecReg last semester, and he is extremely good with the subject matter. I have no idea what the overall grade distribution was, though. I don't know anyone who got less than a B+, but it's too small a sample size to be indicative of anything.
