Grandparents of Law Students More Likely to Die Than Any Other Segment of Population

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

My very funny colleague and Feminist Law Prof Michael Mushlin asked this question today:

Have you ever noticed that at about this time in the semester, law students’ grandparents, with whom they are “very close,” seem to die at a rate faster than just about any other segment of the population?

This is something that the Center for Disease Control might want to study for the next issue of its   Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.   Certainly we should keep track of these sorts of events on a per law school basis, so that when the grandparent shows up happy and healthy at graduation, we can share the family’s joy.
