Celebrate Earth Day at Student Gov Pub Night!


What better way to celebrate sustainable living than by drinking some local beers on Student Government’s dime?

Stop by the weekly pub night from 7-8:30 pm tomorrow night at Queen’s Head. We’ll be there with the drink tickets that never run out!

And don’t forget to check out the HLS Earth Day celebration from 11:30 am-1:30 pm outside on the Hark Patio! (There will be food, vendors, games, prizes and more!)

Hope to see you tomorrow night,


Room Temperature Issues?


If you are in a class or dorm room and you feel like it is too hot or too cold, fill out the online form at the following website to let Facilities know:

Do it any and every time you feel the room you’re in is below 70 degrees or above 74.  If you want to know more about how this will help, please keep reading.

Probably the most frequent complaints we get are those of classrooms being too hot or too cold.  We are constantly working with Facilities to address the problem, and what we find they always need is data.  If they know exactly when you were uncomfortable and where in the room you were, they are better able to assess the conditions in the classroom that might be causing that discomfort.  To help improve the quality and quantity of data Facilities has to address these complaints, we worked with them to create this form. By filling it out, you will enable Facilities to better track the pattern of complaints with regard to time and specific location and, hopefully, come up with solutions.

The data from this form will both enable Facilities to investigate the immediate problem, as well as track the pattern of complaints to investigate common areas or times that seem to be a continuing problem.

If you have any question or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

P.S., we do recognize the irony that we just got this form up and it is now the last week of classes, but hey, better late than never!

Harvard Journal on Law and Mind Sciences?


Want to support the creation of a Journal on Law and Mind Sciences at HLS?  If so, click here to express your support.

The Harvard Journal on Law and Mind Sciences

The Harvard Journal of Law and Mind Sciences will be the first journal dedicated to exploring the relevance of the mind sciences for law and policy. The Journal will publish legal scholarship that examines the implications of the mind sciences on the law, and it will also publish reviews of original research in psychology, behavioral economics, and neuroscience with implications for law and policy making.
We hope to provide a consolidated forum for mind science researchers to share their insights with the legal community and to facilitate greater interdisciplinary discussion. The Journal of Law and Mind Sciences stands for the belief that good policy requires an accurate understanding of how human beings actually think and behave.
Please show your support in establishing a Journal on Law and Mind Sciences at Harvard Law School!
Thank you for your time and support!

Check Your Bike!


Some of you have contacted us to ask about what happens to all the over crowded bike racks here at HLS.  Here’s what we found out:

Quad Bikes will be tagging and removing the abandoned bikes on the HLS campus at the beginning of April. The process:

Quad Bikes comes to campus and tags abandoned looking bikes for at least two weeks so their owners have an opportunity to remove the tag and keep the bikes. Then they cut the locks and use the Harvard Recycling truck to bring them back to Quad Bikes. They hold the bikes for a month so their owners have another chance to claim them.

Hope this is helpful,


UPDATE: Reminder: Special Student Government Pub Night – Wednesday, March 10
