Please see important Letter from Dean Camille Cameron regarding the recent issue of the Oyez.

Francine A. Herlehy Assistant Dean (Student Services) University of Windsor Faculty of Law Room Gi 12 401 Sunset Avenue Windsor, Ontario N98 3P4 < herlehy@uwindsor.ca 519-253-3000 ext 4228
Please consider the environment before punting this email.

Dear Students, I am writing regarding the decision today to withdraw from circulation available copies of Oyez. That decision was taken because there was a comment in Oyez that crossed a line. Looked at from the perspectives of many members of the public, our alumni, our donors, and our other friends and supporters, it was offensive and unacceptable. I do not mean that was the intention, but that was the effect. Material that is printed and disseminated in the name of Windsor Law has to take account of these reputational issues and concerns. I am responsible to our students and faculty, and also to a much wider constituency, thus I had to make the decision I did. I wish I had not been put in that position, but I was. Sincerely, Camille Cameron Dean and Professor Windsor Law School

The Chronicles of this S%$T Time of Year [by Ken Bandeira]


Exams are fast approaching and with that comes those Windsor Law sweaters, track pants, CANS being thrown around like a drunk law student on the mechanical bull, and the musky scent of law students as they scrimmage around trying to get there shit together, panicking and hoping that everyone else in class paid as much attention as them. As profesors find new methods to grade those exams beyond throwing all of them down the stairwell and grading based on where thapers fall, ILs running around like chickens without heads, with stress in their eyes and the hope that the dev astation wont be to much when they check there grades in the New Year. Sleepless nights, new memories, and a few tears might be around the corner but never forget that its all about the experience. I am discussing here experiences beyond blacking out at the Loop on Halloween, losing your jacket the same night, and then posting on Facebook asking for its safe return. Lastly I leave you stressed out nuts with some words of wisdom about billing your client (apparently something 1 L Shaun Aaron failed to do>. Why does the law society prohibit sex between lawyers and their clients 9 DRUM ROLL PLEASE.... To prevent clients from being billed twice for essentially the same service.

WELCOME TO WINDSOR LAW! And if youre in Law II, Law Ill or been waiting in line for a parking space, wel come back! Now that classes are in full swing, both of you that have been paying attention in class think youve figured out your professors teaching style. Sorry to be that guy, but youre wrong. Learning your professors style properly takes years, careful study and a few well-placed spies. Since you cant afford all three, the Oyez will help you out by giving these warning signs of an evil professor. If your prof does any two of the following, your legal career will require you to drop the course, even if it means failing. Trust us, an extra year of law school is nothing compared to a professor who hates you, even with blind marking:

BEEFS
[by Halley Carcasole]
1. Real Housewives of Anything.

This grumpy Calgarian has some pet peeves, and she is unleashing the wrath! .again!
. .

2. Hangovers. How dare you take the fun out of my alcoholism?

3. When a person calls your phone and has the wrong number, but cant Is Elizabeth there? No, sorry, you have the wrong number. Lizzy? Liz? Stifi Nope. Well is this 566-6666? Yes. So can I talk to Elizabeth? No.
4. On that Beef, unknown numbers that dont leave a message! I know it must have been that hot guy who I gave my number to! Or that law firm I really want to work at! Or.... another wrong number. 5. When people treat their relationships like a reality TV show. I dont care why your boy friend didnt answer your phone call until the third ring. 6. Weak handshakes. If you cant shake my hand properly, I cant respect you. 7. Guys who wear sneakers outside of the rm. Where are you running off to? Hopefully the mall to buy better shoes! 8. Dan Di Fonzos perfections. That man is a gift to women! Its kind of annoying. Um...never mind. Dan, call me! 9. When girls spend hours on their hair, just to get it to look messy. Its not that they actual ly do this, its that they think they are fooling anyone. 10. Pervy guys. I know this beef isnt original, but it is disgusting.

Now that Movember is over, it should be easier to avoid pervy guys.

November 21st, Justin Bieber hit the stage at the Palace of Auburn Hills. For everyone who missed it, heres a recap from someone who also missed it by choice. Because Im an adult. And didnt have $200 for the cheapest ticket on Stubhub.

&

The Crowd: A sea of Sele na Gomez hating, purple wearing, preteen Beliebers filled the Palace. Sprinkled among them were several awkward looking fathers desperately trying to win the love of their daughters, a pack of 30 year old cou gars who have come out of hiding since the Beebs 18th birthday, and several 24 year old girls who you shouldnt be judged because ITS TOTAL LY NORMAL FOR THEM TO BE THERE, OKAY?! The Opening Act (Carly Rae Jepson): 30 minutes of Call Me Maybe on a loop. One man starts bleeding from the ears; everyone else seems okay.

all the words to, which is not terrifying at all. The songs even included a cover of Yesterday by The Beatles, which was The Performance: The show described by all the fans there opened with the title track from as the best song ever! Who are his newest album: Boyfriend (is The Beatles, and why cant they that what the cd is called?) The just leave Justin alone?! The screaming from the pre-teens concert closed with the smash hit Baby featuring an appearance by none other than Ludacris himself! Can we all just take a quick mo ment to mourn the loss of Luda as a rapper? The man has 3 Grammys and is still on tracks with Bieber and Jesse McCartney. I know all his lyrics in both of those songs. Im not ashamed. The concert also featured no less than 5 ten minute dance breaks. We get it Biebs, you can dance, stop rubbing it in our faces. Some people think my robot dance moves are pret ty great too, so, theres that. break-up with Selena Gomez. In a related note, I no longer believe in love.

Highlights: Special guest ap pearance by at least one of Will Smiths kids! Likely just Jayden; Willow lost all appeal when she The Stage: The stage, locat shaved her head. She was liter Palace, the ed in the middle of ally only famous for one thing: has an offensive number of whipping her hair back and purple flashing lights, and no forth. What could she possibly less than 3 glitter cannons. do on stage now? Stand there Basically youll have a seizure a and make us all uncomfortable from the lights, and then wake with her weird hairless head? up covered in glitter with no No thank you. Also, Jayden and cougars makes the first 30 idea what happened. Its the actually raps on Never Say Nev closest any of us will ever come minutes of the show inaudible, er, so that makes more sense. to understanding Ke$ha. The which was totally fine with us, I also know all those words. I say all the dads. The set list in Biebs even as a flying heart might have a problem you guys. cluded never before heard Jus swing you can google it. Its from this swing that Bieber shed tin Bieber songs that all the 13 . Overall Grade: B+ (This grade year old girls inexplicably know one single tear over his recent literally means nothing).

The Ocheje Melee:


Classes were ending, exam prep was in full force, and everyone thought they had made it through the semester with no scratch es, and then, all hell broke loose for first years. On November 28, 2012, Professor Ocheje announced to his first year proper ty class that their exam would consist entirely of True or False questions leading to, what this writer is referring to as, The True/ False Freakout of 2012. Students immediately turned to Facebook to express their out rage, likely out of fear that showing any kind of emotion in Oche jes class results in being yelled at. Many students have claimed theyre going to take a damn the man approach and get everyone to answer false to all ques tions, assuring everyone gets a B. Watch out I Ls, that plan is great in theory, but that guy sifting behind you in class has been studying since August, and honestly, not one of you can be trust ed. There goes your B curve. When reached for comment, Ocheje had nothing to say for him self other than, How do you know where I live? Get off my lawn or Im calling the cops! As someone who has written Ocheje hypos before, consider this a Christmas gift from him. Or Hannukah, or Kwanzaa, or whatev er it is everyone celebrates. Deep breaths guys, youre going to be airight. Good luck!

SAID No LAw STUDENT EVER


Im quite content to still be hunting for the right summer/articling job. The right fit is my only priority, Of course I d rather be in Sweaty Leddy buffing up on JR than at the Loop.. .with all my friends.., I love the law school B curve. It motivates me to work for the A. Long hours, late nights, and working on the weekends thats my dream job.

Please tell me more about your opinions on (insert hot button topic) and how you think you can solve the problem by repeated Facebook status updates.

No, I dont need a break. Please continue your lengthy discussion that is nowhere near related to our course.

I dont go to meetings in the moot just for the free food.


I like that our classrooms dont have windows.

Do they offer A2J for upper years?

Authors biggest fashion regret: owning orange cargo pants in the 9th grade. Worse than that, I would wear them multiple times a week.

I thought I would do something a little more relevant than generic fashion advice. And what better way to do this than interview some of Windsor Laws most fashionable JD candidates? So, for your viewing and reading please, I present two students whose styles is streets ahead. Name: Scott Robson Year of Law School: Law II Hometown: Edmonton, Alberta Describe your fashion style: Well I really wish I could describe my style as being influenced by something awesome like Parisian Street fashion, yada, yada, yada, but that would certainly be a lie. I guess if I had to describe my style, it is best captured by the phrase patched together copycat. If I see a cool dude rockin a really wicked greaser look, or some other guy wearing a solid cable knit sweater, I just do my best to copy it and put it all together. Where does most of your clothing come from: Places I typically shop are Urban Outfitters, The Bay, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, J Crew and a few local Edmonton shops. How do you make decisions about what to buy: Except for dress clothes and shoes, I think I buy 98% of my stuff off of the sale rack. Most of the shirts I wear everyday I got for around 20 bucks, so price plays a big role in what I buy. Beyond that, I often just gravitate towards something that has charac ter. I cant really say what that means, but if it just seems like it has a different pattern or color from all of the other stuff on the rack, I usually pick it up. The other thing that drives a large number of my purchases is warmth. I am definitely a big fan of having a solid selection of classic sweaters, you know, the kind of sweaters that seem like someone really old knit them. Those never go out of style. Name: Katelyn Echlin-Scorer Year of Law School: 1 Hometown: Whitby, Ontario Describe your fashion style: Classy casual Where does most of your clothing come from: I like clothing from Madewell but I cant afford much of it. I shop everywhere and I borrow a lot of my wifes clothing (one of the many benefits of being in a same sex relation ship). I get clothing from H & M, J Crew, Forever 21, Value Village, thrift stores..you name it! How do you make decisions about what to buy: Its hard to describe my decision process. I have a unique style that is rather gender-neutral. I add my own flare of femininity to it. I can easily go from the womens section to the mens section and find things to wear. I first consider whether the price is reasonable. Im a law student, so budget is pretty important. If it looks classy and casual at the same time, its golden. As a vegan I dont buy leather or fur I try to support clothing that is ethica11, made I like ersatflity and clothing that can go from day to night with a slight alteration rather than an entire wardrobe change.

The feeling is reflected by Jeremy Brown a 1L and member of the Class of 2015, Im actually embarrassed for 3L students graduating this year, I mean this year they are going to pay $13,500 as base tuition, when Im in 3L Im going to be paying $16,000, its almost like Im go ing to the University of Toronto!

Windsor Law was once reviled for having the thriftiest tuition around. The greater universi ty has been listening and has come to the rescue of law stu dents. Students simply want to pay more, if they dont then why do they accept yearly increas es? The problem? 1L students are being unfairly privileged be cause their tuition can be raised by 8% per year, while the rest of us already in law school are only having our tuition rise 4% per an num; where is the justice?

This movement is not some thing thats been accomplished overnight. Only 10 years ago, tuition was at half the rate it is today. However, like all advanc es, the progress made over the last decade is under threat. The Quebec Student protests of 2011 and 2012 show that progress in tuition can be reversed. When asked about whether he could imagine returning to the time when a student line of cred it was unnecessary; 2L student Rob Smith spat on the ground and said I dont want my law degree to appear on the value menu at McDonalds, I came to this school to pay out my ass, and thats what I expect to see when I look at my debt While it may be too late for Rob to pay what his successors will in the coming years, he sleeps well at night knowing that every year we are reaching closer and closer to that dream where Access to Justice is truly a luxury brand.

Too many choices!

Have you ever wanted to see two politicians duke it out? WeU now you can indulge your deepest Freudian, ld-ean desires in an article that will get your heart racing more than E.L. James and R.L. Steins love-child ever could. Thats right, the anticipation of Trudeau and Brazeau will have nothing on this St. Pierre vs Silva-esque fight that will leave one side more embarrassed than the 2506 Brigade ever did (Thats the Bay of Pigs fiasco, for those of you too lazy to pick up a history book). Annnd now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment youve been waiting for... In the left corner, measuring 62, and weighing in at a lean I 92lbs we have Stephan Harper, the former Alberta separatist who can be credited on the advent of the new millennium with the statement: Canada appears content to become a second-tier socialistic country, boasting ever more loudly about its economy and social ser vices to mask its second-rate status... A round of applause for our Reigning Dict-err... current Presid. .uh, Prime Minister Mr. Harper!
.

HARPER V

:rc jabbing, left, left, left, left, right ohhhh and he gets Mulcair good with a snide remark about Mulcairs flight to Albertas NDP convention using jet fuel produced by the very Sydney tar-ponds he so adores. Mulcairs on the defensive off the get go but counters with the point that Harpers cancelled more environmental reviews than Ron Paul, Rick Perry would have combined! Bachmann and Michelle Oh and it looks like Mulcairs drawn first blood! What a surprise that Mulcair took the high road and didnt mention the irony in Harper lambast ing someone else on the topic of jets... Harper ripostes with the criticism that Mulcair drew from his own Ed Broadbent earlier in March that 90% of the NDP MPs who served with Mulcair backed other candidates in the election that has GOT to hurt!

M U LCAIR

Looks like

In the right corner, we have newcomer Thomas Mulcair, measuring 6l, and weighing in at a slightly beefier 2141bs. Mulcair, a relatively un known-till-recently-turned-Prime-Minister-in-Wait ing, has been criticized by Premiers and current! former leaders across the nation alike, being referred to as producing ideas that are facile... and devise by Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, goofy... [and] gobbledygook by B.C. Premier Christy Clark, and simply doesnt make sense by Jim Flaherty, Welcome Mr. Mulcair! And here are the ring girls, Minister of Labour Lisa Raitt for the PC wait, is that the best they could do? and NDP MP Niki Ashton, waving to the camera much better and... fight!

Both fighters are starting to look a bit worn out now, but Harper is keeping up the pressure here, staying on the offensive. And another jab by Harper at Mulcair for his Dutcer, foot-in-mouth disease in wanting to reject the Nexen merger with CNOOC, thanking Mulcair for setting him up perfectly to claim in front of the Tanzanian Pres ident that the NDP is ideologically.., opposed to all investments. And Mulcair is down! Can he recover? But look! Hes not out! Mulcair coming out of nowhere with the surprise June Abacus poll statistic that only 34% of Canadians approved of the Harper government thats worse than Lyndon Johnsons rating during the Vietnam war! That right hook came out of nowhere and seems to have sent Harper reeling. With both fighters on the ropes, it seems like this is one for the judges so, who won?

Coming up with (and sticking with> an exercise and meal plan can be a daunting task. This guide haq been prepared to take the guessing out of your work out!

1. The law school has stairs that we walk up and down every day (sometimes multiple times a day). Consider that your daily cardlo. If you find yourself going up and down the stairs frequently throughout the day, treat yourself with a baconator. Youve earned it. 2. Figuring out what to eat is easiest if youre perpetually in a bulking phase. Food, get at/in me. 3. But, bulking isnt for everyone. Looking to slim down? Try Kalteen bars. First, youll bloat, then youll immediately drop 10 pounds. The bars burn up all your carbs, and then your body runs just on water, then, once the water is gone, youll be pure lean muscle.

4. Staying motivated is tough. Recruit a buddy to workout with. Then you never need to wor ry about having someone to get froyo with as a reward for hitting the gym. (By the way, I am always down for froyo. Seriously). 5. Dont know what to do at the gym? Youre not alone. Try looking at YouTube for pointers on technique and form. People will be so impressed with all of your knowledge they will think that you were born in a gym. Once youve impressed people, ease off. After youve won the approval of strangers, is there anything left to do at the gym? The answer is no.

Movie reviews are a wonderful thing.

Reviewers provide

MoviE REviEws

you with the ability to ensure that your hard earned dollars are not wasted on a shockingly terrible movie (or 2 hours wasted on lceFilms for the rest of you).

Unfortunately The OYEZ doesnt yet have the credibility to get a reviewer to prescreen films for you, but they are fortunate enough to have me, Both my movie-going and movie-marketing experience has landed me the ability to somewhat accurately criticize a movie based simply on its previews which are luckily, quite accessible to me. I give

you my thumbless reviews. World War Z: Lets put comedy to rest for a sec ond and get serious. Ive had a small list of large disappointments in my life: Not getting asked to the grade 9 non-denominational hol D WAR iday dance, getting rejected from Law School my first round, and the preview for World War Z. This preview pukes all over the books unreal ability to create a brutally 20 realistic view on what the world might be like after a zombie apoc alypse. Seems like Brad Pitt was jealous of Tom Cruise in War of the Worlds and decided to take his own classic.., and barf all over it. To everyone whos read it (and if you havent, you should) the zombies move fast... FAST ZOM BIES? Ugh... whats the point?

Lincoln: To be clear, this is not a vampire movie. Dont say I didnt warn you. If its anything like Bore Horse, it will likely be a struggle to stay awake while watching it, but youll feel inclined to tell everyone you know about how amazing the storyline was, and how the actors were stunning. Youll likely even feel the need to tell people Daniel Day Lewis does an amaaaazing Lincoln, because you can tell.

Life of Pi: This trailer blindsided me as a ten minute short before Pro metheus. I spent the later 9 and a half minutes checking with every one around me that I was in the correct theater. It was a bigger snooze than that 10 minute Dark Knight bologna they made me The Heat: Vay, they made Miss Congeni suffer through before Mission Im ality part 3 with the funny chick possible 4.

dents prefer memorizing secondary sources, such as Hoggs views on Canadian division of powers under the Constitution Act of 1867. Truthfully, even the thought of this utopian education setting is unsettling, and makes me yearn for stories of the old days when students use to hide textbooks in the library and have their parents who are lawyers proof read their essays. Im sure the professors must share my opinion. Just because we have been giving out grades since I began teaching 50 years ago doesnt make it the right thing to do. Its just another way the establishment is out to get students, sounds like the Charter is responsible for this... Students learn best when they want to. -Prof. L. Wilson. Are you kidding?
