Bathroom Reader
Getting Published
Have you thought about trying to publish in a law review or journal? We can help! Learn about library resources available to help you compare journals, submit your article, find conference opportunities, and deposit your work in the Harvard open access repository. Visit our guide to Getting Published at http://bit. ly/hlslpublish. Research guides for other topics are available at http://bit.ly/hlslguides. Those of you who have been around a couple of years know that the summer issue of the Bathroom Reader has featured bar exam LOLcats and Lawyer Dog. This year, we’d like to show off creations by YOU, so we’re having a contest. To enter, send your law and/or library inter‑ pretation of any popular meme to research@law.harvard.edu by April 30 at 5pm. Need inspira‑ tion or help creating one? Check out http://www.quickmeme. com. We’ll print our favorites in the summer issue and give Peet’s gift cards to our top three. Anyone may participate, but you must be an HLS student to win. Here’s a Lawyer Dog example just for fun:

New Exhibit: Long Road to Equality
Last week, two cases regarding gay marriage were argued at the Supreme Court. In 1983, HLS student Evan Wolfson wrote a prescient third-year paper titled “Samesex Marriage and Morality: The Human Rights Vision of the Constitution,” leading a wave of HLS students and faculty members fighting for and participating in the discussion about gay marriage. While the Court deliberates, learn more about the HLS community’s 30 years’ involvement in theorizing, advocating and shaping the freedom to marry both in the U.S. and overseas in the new exhibit in the Caspersen Room, Monday – Friday now through July.

That’s the policy. No per‑semester limit. Even for you, Parody, even for you. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have to get back to editing this month’s edition of the Bathroom Reader.
