Penn Statim - Online Companion to Penn State Law Review
Assistant Professor Katniss Everdeen’s stomach rumbled loudly. Another skipped meal, because who had time to eat when working on yet another law review article? Her work had consumed almost a year of her effort and vitality. But despite the gnawing hunger pains, Katniss had to keep working, honing, crafting, and polishing the writing of her article. There was not even time to go poaching with fellow faculty member, Gale, or to engage in puppy-love histrionics with another faculty member, Peeta. Since the great recession had started, resources were scarce in District Twelve. Electricity only came to law school buildings erratically, so she had to work on the article in the few stolen moments of electricity that she could obtain.
