Totally real news from a stressed-out Faculty of Law

Intra Vires declares victory over SNAILS 

With the recently posted signs outside of the library’s group study rooms declaring the rooms “FOR LAW STUDENTS ONLY,” Intra Vires triumphantly announces final victory over the invasion of SNAILS (students not actually in law school) who have been plaguing the Jackman Law Building for the past three months. With the addition of signs in front of the coffee and tea station stating, “RESERVED FOR FACULTY OF LAW COMMUNITY MEMBERS,” these authors finally rest and watch the sun rise on a grateful universe. 

Law students’ next step: territory expansion

Buoyed by the above-mentioned victory, law students are setting their sights on a territory expansion. Now that the home base is secure, law students are looking to study and pull all-nighters in more exotic locales. While Robarts remains far down the list of possible future conquests, rumour has it that the Rotman and Criminology buildings also offer free snacks and luxury amenities. Onward ho!

All I Want for Christmas…is…

Youuuuuuuuu… to reply. After winning best costume at Halloween for their ghosting, and of course, never to be outdone, rumor has it that this Christmas the lack of prompt replies will be on theme with the Ghost of Christmas Past! As if we weren’t already haunted enough by the most pre-eminent Christmas ghost telling us what she wants for Christmas every year. Are those sleighbells I hear in the distance?

When you wish upon a star

As American Thanksgiving has come and gone, the Christmas countdown officially starts! Students may once again hang their stockings, put up their trees, sip hot cocoa, and make fervent prayers to the law school gods to shine down upon you. When asked what kind of offerings the students put up for the best chance at HHs, the most popular combination by far was: gingerbeer, a cricket ball, and a bucket of old oats. Mix the three together vigorously for the best results, they say!
