NO, it isn’t Star Wars, thankyouverymuch.

It’s a new project — something that I’ve been faffing around since 2014 and wrote about it to you all all of you back then (see “Why am I toying with this idea?“).

Learning caselaw?

Wednesday 2 September 2015, 8.24pm HKT


THIS is relevant only to some guys I know who are studying law, and this is just for the record.

Question is, how do we learn anything? There no real ‘trick’ to learning caselaw. The challenge of reading legal text, journal articles, cases and statutes can seem overwhelming in the beginning.

CASHING in on my unbelievably successful streak subliming the movies, I’m blowing my mental capital on another heist for your own recognizance. Post will be ‘in character’; some semi-adult language follows.

Comfy enough in your flatline?

SOMEBODY suggested that I write about the movies I’ve watched or loved. Since I don’t do movie reviews, I’ll try something slightly different.
