Nellie Drew, a University at Buffalo Sports Law Professor, is quoted in the article.
“I think this is a huge blow for fantasy sports,” said Nellie Drew, a University at Buffalo sports law professor. “It will be interesting to see if other states follow New York’s lead, but to some extent, Nevada already has and I think others will, as well. At the same time, I don’t think the fantasy sports industry is going to disappear that easily. The industry has attracted a ton of investment from substantial investors, and they aren’t going away.”
US News has an interesting article on the current trends in law school admissions. With application numbers so significantly down the last few years (just check out the dramatic waning in the ABA Law School Summary!!!), law schools are becoming more flexible in different respects and has certainly resulted in a “buyer’s market” in regards to students applying to law school. Some interesting points for sure. Link.
This article has some good suggestions on how to best approach going through LSAT practice tests – after all, taking practice tests is perhaps at the very “core” of the studying strategy around the LSAT, considering how important it is to become well acquainted with the types of questions asked, how much time you have, strategies to employ, and general “feel” of the exam.

LAWYERS IN MOVIES
Day & Time:
Wednesdays, 6:00 – 6:50 PM
We will discuss a movie a week, spanning in time from the 1930s to the present day, and discuss the way the legal profession is portrayed.
I created a few videos on the Law School Admission Council (LSAC.org) process. The first one details how it all works, and the second one an actual navigation of the website. Each video is brief (3 minutes) but should really help make the whole process applying to law schools more transparent.
