Trick or treat?! Halloween is still more than a week away, but let’s face it, everyone in the legal community — especially the law students — is planning a weekend full of debauchery in their favorite witty (or incredibly naughty) costumes.
For the ninth year in a row, we here at Above the Law are soliciting legally themed costumes for our annual Halloween contest. We’re continually impressed with how creative lawyers and law students can be when they take their noses out of their books.
Have you got what it takes to top the winners of years past? We hope so!
Here are the winning looks from the past six years of the contest, Assault and Battery (2010), Grandfather Clause (2011), Original Intent (2012), Ruth Baby Ginsburg (2013), Short and Plain Statement (2014), Nefarious RBG (2015), the Donald J. Trump College of Law (2016), and The Bluebook (2017). Take a look:
Please email us your pictures and then we’ll vote on the winner of our annual competition. We’re all looking forward to judging you!
