Although traditionally celebrated most by divorce attorneys, on Valentine’s Day, lawyers are finding ways to say they care. For example, Walter H. Bentley III, who sponsored a contest this year to award a free divorce to the lucky winner. “Why not do something special for Valentine’s Day?” Bentley asked ABC News. “You can’t find a new love before you close the chapter on the old.”
For those still in love, the Georgetown Law Weekly has published a set of Supreme Court valentines, one of which can be seen in the gallery at left. Also featured in the gallery are some Law & Order: SVU-themed valentines, a chocolate gavel and a “Romantic Valentine’s Day Memorandum of Understanding” for you to give your sweetie.
