Law Library-related Quote of the Day


“I'm not passing myself off as a constitutional scholar.  I went to law school at a place called Pepperdine in Malibu, Calif., overlooking the Pacific Ocean--a lot of surfing and movie stars and all the rest. I barely knew where that law library was”

Rod Blagojevich


June 12, 2003, speaking to reporters about the debate over whether a draft of ethics legislation properly balanced the powers of various branches of government. He went on to admit to having gotten a C  in his  constitutional law class at Pepperdine, where he graduated in 1983.
