Legal Pub Law Student Day!
Today is a special day for law students and legal scholars. No it is not a national holiday. It is a Legal Pub gift to a small segment of readers who toil everyday in law school.
Every pupil wants to be a better student. Here are some helpful tips designed to improve a law students chance for success . First, determine that some things are just not funny. Take for example the hackers who sent out fake NBC News tweets similar to the following:
“Breaking News! Ground Zero has just been attacked. Flight 5736 has crashed into the site, suspected hijacking. more as the story develops.” NBC News Twitter feed at 5:48 p.m. EDT.
Four minutes later a twitter read: “Flight 4782 is not responding, suspected hijacking. One plane just hit Ground Zero site at 5:47.” Three minutes later, “This is not a joke. Ground Zero has just been attacked. We’re attempting to get reporters on the scene.” Finally, a message appeared: “NBCNEWS hacked by The Script Kiddies.” Lesson to be learned, somethings are not funny. Expect the "kiddies" involved to be tracked down by the FBI and severely punished. For more conventional learning tips, visit the sites below.
