Tim Robinson
Senior Editor
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

What do you do as Senior Editor?
As Senior Editor, I do substantive edits on Comments and Casenotes written by professors, practitioners, and students that have been selected for publication in the Louisiana Law Review. I also have a group of Junior Associates that I work with throughout the writing process, whose articles I will edit once they are completed.

What has been your favorite class?
I really enjoy Real Estate Transactions taught by Professor Goring. It is an extremely practical course, with application in both the legal profession and simply for anyone interested in property transactions.

What is the last thing you recorded on TV?
I just made my way through a pretty ugly Narcos bender, so I’ve mostly been sticking to Netflix recently.

What is your favorite book?
I just read The Man in the High Castle after watching the Amazon series based on the book and I really enjoyed it. I read Don Quixote before law school because I thought it would make me smarter. Still waiting for the effects to kick in, but it was a great read.

What is your favorite movie?
Good Will Hunting. I try to reenact the scene in the bar with the Harvard kids at least once a week. So if you see me at Bogie’s, you probably shouldn’t approach. Mean Girls is a close second.

What three items would you take on a deserted island?
What am I, a sucker? I’m bringing an airplane. And a volleyball.

Do you collect anything?
I have a pretty extensive collection of one-edition-behind casebooks from the last two years. Willing to part with it for the right (or any) price.

Which of your five senses is strongest?
You only have five senses?

You get to invite 3 individuals (living or dead) to dinner. Who are they and what would you talk about?
John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier from Full House circa 1992. We would probably talk about Law Review stuff. Or we would make fun of Saget for never having a rockin’ mullet on the show.

What is one fact that everyone should know about you?
I was the St. Theresa of Avila Middle School 40-yard dash champion 3 years in a row from 2001-2004.

What do you prefer: the Civil Code or the Common Law?
There’s nothing common about me.
