Oh, the places you’ll go! Oh, the people you’ll sue!

In honor of our graduating 3Ls, let’s consider the author of that time-honored grad gift, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!  When you think of links between Dr. Seuss and the law, copyright issues likely spring to mind, like this case involving a Dylan-inspired rendition of Green Eggs and Ham. 

But Whoville knows abound whenever Dr. Seuss is around.  To explore the Seussian legal world, see the New York Law School Law Review’s March 2013 symposium “Exploring Civil Society Through the Writings of Dr. Seuss.”  You can listen to the program here or watch videos here. Topics include personal rights of identity, the nature of war, and business and society.
An early congratulations to the class of 2014!
