Law Student Dreams of the Aaland Islands (and their freaky sheep)

Published on Jan 8th, 2010 by

Some are wondering if Google Dreams of Electric Lawsuits? given the uncompensated homage their new ‘Android’ and ‘Nexus’ brands to Philip K. Dick’s novella Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? featuring a bounty hunter after several Nexus-6 models of Android.

I’m starting to dream of Aaland Island sheep. The work on the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is well underway, with briefs due next week and oral arguments in regional national competitions in a little over a month. One of the principle cases in this year’s case concerns Aaland Islands from 1921, so I got interested in how things turned out. The Aaland Islands appear to be a thriving island community, albeit with some odd sheep.

According to Soderstrom:

“During a project on Aaland Islands I lived in a small cottage in the woods. Every night these creatures came streaking around the house making strange noise. Scary to some…the story tells, that in the glowing eyes of these beasts, your future can be seen.”

I wouldn’t want to shear those sheep.
