Put together yourselves for the worst, however hope for one of the best (that’s what we’ll be doing, since we anticipate we could also be seeing plenty of Girl Gaga/Bradley Cooper, Ariana Grande, and Child Shark parodies).
These liable for the successful video will get Above the Regulation prizes and the pleasure of figuring out they’re the envy of all their legislation college brethren. As all the time, there might be full and whole exoneration for the losers. There’s all the time subsequent yr….

To keep away from complaints from opponents (see, e.g., West Virginia’s 2013 successful entry), your major performers should come from throughout the legislation college neighborhood (however cameos from outsiders are okay). How can we outline a “major performer”? Don’t check us, gunners. We’ll know a violation after we see it.
Ship us that submission by THURSDAY, APRIL 25, at 5:00 P.M. (Jap time). That’s not a tender, legislation college deadline; it’s a tough, legislation agency deadline.
