Colorado Law Students Write and Perform an Original Musical about Life in Law School

The Law Students for the Performing Arts and the Dairy Center for the Arts are proud to co-present the First Annual Colorado Law School Musical: Glamorous Law School, which plays The Dairy Center for the Arts in the Carsen Theater from April 12-14, 2012 (opening night Thursday, April 12). This original dark musical comedy is written, composed, directed and performed by the students of the University of Colorado Law School. Tickets can be purchased by calling (303) 444-7328 or www.thedairy.org. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 23.

Glamorous Law School reflects the strange experience of the modern law student, contrasting the promised dream of instant wealth and fame against the uncomfortable reality of unemployment and difficult choices. Featuring original songs such as “Dating in Law School’s a Mistake,” and a dance battle between legal research companies, Glamorous Law School is sure to please everyone’s inner law student.

Glamorous Law School was created by the Law Students for the Performing Arts (LSPA), a student group at the University of Colorado Law School. The LSPA is dedicated to involving the students of CU Law in performing arts by placing legal learning in a boarder cultural context. The LSPA intends to make producing a musical an annual facet of life at the law school.

The LSPA is thrilled to be partnering with the Dairy Center for the Arts in presenting this project. Located at 2590 Walnut Street in Boulder, the Dairy Center for the Arts is a nonprofit cultural arts organization founded in 1992, where the community can experience dramatic theater, comedy, live music, dance performances, and visual arts under one roof. The Dairy is home to 15 resident arts organizations.

Tenth Circuit: Court Not Required to Credit Defendant for Previous Terms of Revocation Imprisonment

The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals published its opinion in United States v. Hunt on Wednesday, March 21, 2012.

The Tenth Circuit affirmed the district court’s sentence. Petitioner was sentenced to 18 months’ in prison for violating the conditions of his supervised release. “On appeal, he argues the district court failed to apply 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(3) to give him credit for prison time served on two prior sentences for revocation of his supervised release. Taken together, [Petitioner] claims these sentences exceed the maximum amount of supervised release authorized for his original offense, which federal law prohibits.

The Court disagreed. The district court was not required to credit Petitioner for his previous terms of revocation imprisonment. The court was only required to consider his previous revocation imprisonment when setting a new term of supervised release.
