A contest!

Open to all readers of this blog who are not current or past attendees of law school.

Lawyers use lots of big words and stock phrases. To save time, we also use a lot of abbreviations. I'm going to give you a list of ten abbreviations and acronyms that lawyers use. For each meaning you correctly guess, you get a point. For each meaning you guess that is incorrect but is significantly more entertaining than the actual meaning, you get half a point. Don't cheat. I can tell when you lie. Answers will be announced once I think I've got enough entries. Remember, if you don't enter, you can't win, nor can you lose with style.

1. DV
2. PC
3. FDCPA
4. SMJ
5. π
6. NCCUSL
7. FF&C
8. PUD
9. RA
10. TRO
