Volume 1, Issue 2 (Originally Published 5 March 2012)
THE student body has spoken, and shall be justly rewarded! After a long week of excellent suggestions the people, via the all- powerful Facebook*, have decided that their weekly newspaper shall be called... De Minimis!
One can only presume that this name was chosen as a tribute to the newsletter that was once run by the Law Students’ Society circa 1948- 1976. The new De Minimis, however, will be slightly different. De Minimis jr. will be sourcing our content from the entire Law school community! All are invited to contribute; students, professors, firms... hell even passers- by if we’re feeling adventurous.
We are more than pleased to take up the De Minimis mantle. I don’t listen in class much but I heard rumour that there’s this strange concept called precedent and apparently it’s pretty cool in Law circles. Besides, what good is a Law publication without a Latin title?
Yes yes, I hear you say, hurry up and get to the reward! We are delighted to announce that we will be accompanying our weekly newspaper with a brand spanking new website. Rather than force the average Joe McLawStudent to sprint from their Monday class to seize a glorious copy of the latest De Minimis, you can access all of our articles, past and present, all day, every day! In fact; with the wonders of modern technology, inexplicably undelivered by our namesake, you can even read our newsletter before that Monday class even finishes!!!**
We are delighted to invite you to visit www.mudeminimis.com for all your De Minimis needs.
To posterity... and beyond!

**De Minimis does not condone anything short of the utmost attention in class.
