Who Needs Barbri When We Have Jay-Z?

Who Needs Barbri When We Have Jay-Z?

On behalf of all of us who need a serious refresher on Crim law — thank you, Gawker.com, for the recent post featuring a line-by-line legal analysis breakdown of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” by Caleb Mason, an associate professor of law at Southwestern University.

The song presents the issue of what rights an individual has when his car is pulled over by the police, and what is required for the cops to legally search his car. If this all sounds vaguely familiar and gives you flashbacks from 1L, check out the post and Mason’s contribution to the Saint Louis University Law Journal embedded in its entirety at the end of the article.

2Ls, take heart — it is possible to write a journal note and still be cool.
