Harry Potter and the Law

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opens tonight in most theaters (including Grundy's!).

Somewhat amazingly, Harry and his wizarding world have been the topic of a few scholarly papers. Through the Legal Scholarship Network, these law review articles are available to you even before they are published!

* Harry Potter and the Half-Crazed Bureaucracy by Professor Benjamin Barton

* Harry Potter and the Three-Second Crime: Are We Vanishing the De Minimis Doctrine from Copyright Law? by Professor Julie Cromer

* Harry Potter and the Law by Professor Aaron Schwabach

* Harry Potter and the Unforgivable Curses: Norm-formation, Inconsistency, and the Rule of Law in the Wizarding World by Professor Aaron Schwabach

These links work only for students and faculty on campus. Check with Chris if you want off-campus access (not on Friday night, though, because he'll be watching the movie!).
