Peep-le's Law: ABA's Photo Gallery of Life, Law, and Marshmallow Peeps

By Neetal Parekh on April 06, 2010 | Last updated on January 27, 2020

Just off the heels of Easter, if you walk into a grocery store, drug store, or convenient store this week you will see them.  Donning familiar pastel pinks, yellows,  and blues, they will likely be relegated to clearance bins, marked with "50% Off" stickers, or headlined under "Buy 1 Get 1 Free".

They are Peeps.

Otherwise known as those marshmallowy confections shaped like curious versions of animals. Hundreds of millions of Peeps are whisked off of store shelves each year.  So, what happens to the heaps of Peeps that survive Easter? And what in a chick's name is the connection of Peeps and law...well, the ABA Journal has found a definitive link through their photo gallery "Peeps in Law":

Aptly titled "Hung Jury," one peep-shot is also instructive in illustrating the Constitutional concept of a jury of one's peers.

Another one particularly highlights one of the mainstays of law school, the study group. The Peep-friendly casebooks and laptops are especially helpful in getting a better image of how study groups work in parallel Peep-worlds. And, now we have an idea of Peeps' study food of choice.

And, the strain of a Bar exam may even be enough to compromise the somewhat alarming indestructibility of an average Peep. Unfortunate, but understandable.

So the question becomes, how would you Peep-ify the law?
