Secret Lives at PMH: Joby Richard


By: Liz Wong

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you…Joby Richard.

Q: What are you most excited for regarding your 2L year?

A: 2L year is having choice in my course load and having vested interested in classes that I take.

Q: What kind of extra-curriculars are you involved in?

A: I want to get involved in the Mental Health Organization. I really think that’s a good organization for law students, especially dealing with the stress of classes and balancing a life with it.  Also, I want to join the Environmental or the Energy Society because I’m really interested in pursuing that certificate and maybe a media law organization.


Flawless Fashion with the Fashion Police

By: The Fashion Police

KendallLast month, the Fashion Police were extremely curious to see who started off the school year with their fashion game on point.  The Fashion Police gave you free fashion reign and challenged everyone at PMH to submit their best back to school look to The Civilian’s Facebook page in exchange for the chance to win a $30 gift card to the Mall of Louisiana.  This month’s winning “Who Wore it Best” entry was submitted by 3L Kendale Thompson!  Congratulations, Kendale!  YOU wore it best!  From your cognac oxford shoes to your printed button down shirt, you pulled off your back to school look fLAWlessly!  (The only thing that could have made your photo better was if you were reading the latest issue of The Civilian…maybe next time.)


Lunchin’ & Brunchin’

By: Angelina Valuri and Prof. Jeff Brooks.  


There is no denying the fact we both have a soft spot in our hearts for an easy, breezy, and delicious Sunday brunch.  The beautiful fall weather this month here in Baton Rouge encouraged us to go exploring for a new restaurant. Surprisingly enough, we didn’t have to travel far!  It’s a good thing we were paying attention because if we blinked too long, we would have driven right by Table Kitchen & Bar located in the Southdowns Shopping Center.  (4205 Perkins Rd. 225-239-7799)

Table Kitchen & Bar is a locally-owned restaurant that takes a farm-to-table culinary approach in an upscale, yet casual environment.  The restaurant provides a unique and creative collaboration of food products that showcase regional offerings and seasonal local resources.  Not only are local produce and meat delivered to the restaurant every week, but each item is personally selected by the executive chef, Curtis Froelich.  It also has a full bar with eclectic wine and handcrafted cocktails.  Patio seating is available, weather permitting.

As a reminder, every month Professor Brooks and I, along with a rotating “mystery diner” guest will order three separate lunch/brunch dishes from restaurants that are not only affordable, but are also a little bit off the beaten path.  All restaurants will receive an overall rating between 1-5 gavels, with 1 gavel rating being “poor” and a 5 gavels rating being “excellent.”

If you have a lunch or brunch location you would like to see reviewed, please feel free to e-mail your suggestions to or


Framed! with The Hitchcock Blonde

Black Mass

Written and Directed By Scott Cooper

blass massCall it what you may, but this will be Johnny Depp’s comeback film. While the actor has most notably struggled recently with the media and his personal life woes, his professional life also has been lacking some “deppth” on the silver screen. With the latest failures of Mortdecai and The Lone Ranger and a depressingly publicized breakup, remarriage, and dog controversy (see Google for details), I’ve been wondering what my always-in-the-top-five-actor has been doing with his life. Tsk tsk, Johnny, poor choices….until I saw Black Mass this weekend.


What’s Happening in the Red Stick?

By: Megan Wiggins

Happy Fall, everyone! This is my favorite time of the semester, and it is not just because pumpkin-flavored everything is making its appearance in stores. We have all gotten into a routine; football season is in its prime, and finals are still far enough away where we can have an active social calendar and not feel guilty. Here’s a few of the many fall-themed events happening throughout the Red Stick that I think you’ll enjoy:
