The end of October usually finds law students hunkered down.  The excitement of starting classes has worn off and the end of the semester seems far away.  Offering a contest that covers laws associated with Halloween can add some fun and energy to this part of the semester.  LexisNexis offered 13 Starbucks cards ($5 each) for the contest.  (We were between Westlaw reps at the time so we didn’t get anything from West for it.)  
Students at the University of Hawaiʻi responded to the challenge.  Many students commented on how it made legal research fun.  We offered entrants a piece of Godiva chocolate when the contest was submitted at the circulation desk.  We emailed the contest with the subject line:  WIN a Starbucks Card!  Enter the Halloween Law Contest!
Show off your legal research skills by participating in our Halloween Law Contest.  Contest deadline is Wed. Oct. 31, 2012, at 11:45 am.  When you submit your entry in the Caveat Spiritus cauldron in the Law Library, you will get a treat.
All correct entries will go into a drawing for 13 Starbucks gift cards. Read the questions carefully and beware of tricks!
