Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1. Question: Is there any way for a man to be arrested for sexual assault if he has consensual sex with a woman?

Answer: Yes -- if he pokes holes in his girlfriend's condoms to try to get her pregnant. (CTV News, Convicted condom-piercer taking appeal to Supreme Court of Canada)

2. Question: We run a shopping center. Can we set up our own parking meters along the private streets on our property and issue parking tickets to people who don't feed our meters?  

Answer: Probably not, as private entities such as shopping centers arguably have no legal authority to enforce parking meters. (The Consumerist, Mall Puts Up Its Own Parking Meters Of 'Questionable Legality', Issues Tickets)

3. Question: I am about to graduate from high school. I'd like to become a lawyer but there's no way I'm spending the next seven years going to school. Is there any way to get my law degree quicker than that?

Answer: Yes, the University of Kansas will let you knock out both your bachelor's and law school degree in just six years. (ABA JournalBoth bachelor's and JD degree can be earned in only 6 years under new program)
