Just in time for Halloween, the Jacob Burns Law Library presents “Zombies and the Law” in our first floor display case.  We explore Haitian law aimed at criminalizing the process of zombification, the use of zombie terminology to explain complex legal theory, and some issues that the law would face in light of a zombie apocalypse.  Included in the display are a number of law review articles, a scan of the Criminal Code of Haiti (1883), and a book from our collection, The Spirits and the Law: Vodou and Power in Haiti.

Come take a look before finals take over your brrraaaaiiiins…..
