Halloween can mean costumes, fun, candy, and lawsuits. Wait, lawsuits? According to a Texas Bar Journal article this month that seems to be the case. Whether you are threatening your neighbors by putting their names on tombstones or lighting your costume on fire, you better know the law. And heaven help you if you end up running scared in a haunted house straight into a brick wall. Then you definitely need to know the law. (Hint: you probably should have known it was a wall.)
So before you put your costume on or head down to Sixth Street (especially if you head down to Sixth Street) make sure you brush up on the law. A great place to start your first lesson would be with Halloween Law: A Spirited Look at the Law School Curriculum. However you celebrate, we hope you have a safe, fun, and lawsuit-free Halloween!
