Review

“This tongue-in-cheek crash course includes a mini-textbook, 10 ‘Heroes of the Courtroom’ trading cards, 10 ‘You Be the Judge’ cards, a mini bar exam, and a faux diploma. Best of all, there’s no tuition!”—Catholic Digest

About the Author

John Cascarano and Jacquelyn Oña Cascarano met in the spring semester, just outside the University of Michigan Law School reading room, where they probably should have been studying. Instead of cases, they found love. (Which is much better, in their unanimous professional legal opinion.) The couple, who got hitched soon after graduation, currently reside in Philadelphia, where they enjoy taking long walks around Rittenhouse Square with their ever-pooping wheaten terrier, Hamburger “Hammy” Cascarano.

I originally bought it as a gift but ended up keeping it for myself. It is a fun kit with trivia and a good reference tool. It comes with a "law school in 96 pages" book that includes definitions and explanations of legal terms. It also presents important court cases and documents in a chronological order. This is truly an entertaining must-have!

I am a law student and have found this little box to be a lot of fun. My friends and I enjoy reading the cards to each other, laughing and having a good time with the box, as it has come to be known. Nice break from the usual and I would recommend to anyone looking for a break from studying.

I've seen what's inside, but personally, it didn't really matter -- it's a novelty item and a good gift for any law student. It's a cheap thrill and not a bad idea to send a current student for a quick laugh :o)

Boy, do I feel like a great big chump for spending six figures on law school tuition. Someone gave this to me as a graduation present, and it was a crushing blow to realize how much time and money I could have saved. Then again, none of my attorney colleagues have Cardozo and Jefferson trading cards. So who's the chump now?

"Law school in a box" came in the mail today! I was so excited I read all the cards and the book today. Had a good laugh and approved on everything they say. It's a great way to relax! I recommend it! (tomorrow I'll show my colleagues this too, I'm sure we'll have a blast reading it through!)

Each year during the holidays my husband's law firm has their annual holiday party and hosts a gift exchange. One of the requirements of the gift exchange oddly enough is that the item you bring must be under $10. This was perfect! I purchased it on sale and was able to bring two for the party. It was an instant hit with every attorney & spouse at the party.

Some of the more hilarious aspects:
- The "Diploma" that includes the details of the "prestigious boxed institution".
- The "Compare and Save" list that shows the savings compared to Harvard, Duke and Yale.
- The "Heroes of the Courtroom" trading cards that show not only a few facts, but make it funny.

Just like most products put out by Mental Floss this one is hilarious and factual. It's obviously not a "true" training course, but even soon-to-be lawyers may appreciate a new way of looking at information that has no doubt become boring and overdone. I highly recommend this as a gift and know from personal experience that it would no doubt be a huge hit in a room full of attorneys!

This was great - couldn't stop laughing. Excellent for anyone that went through law school. Or anyone thinking about going.
