Law school can be stressful. When exam times come around things can become very stressful.
What is a great de-stresser? According to George Mason law school: puppies.
According to this article from the Washington Post, the school arranged to have 15 homeless puppies spend a few hours at the school with students.
Dogs have been used for therapeutic purposes in hospitals for years. There are even programs where they are used in prisons such as a prison dog training program which was covered on Oprah.
As both a dog person and law school graduate, I see this as a great idea. Perhaps some Canadian law schools will follow suit.
