law school/harvard themed party food

A good friend is leaving our office to attend Harvard law school in the fall. I wanted to make the party themed on law/harvard/cambridge etc. Any ideas? I already have a crimson cocktail planned and "harvard squares" of puff pastry with cheese etc. Any good lawyer themed food?? Corny is ok!

    1. Shepard's Pie (as in "Shepardizing"..he might not get the joke now but he will).

      1. What about Harvard beets? http://allrecipes.com/recipe/harvard-...

        You can also buy Boston-based Legal Seafoods' clam chowder in many frozen food sections of supermarkets. Or perhaps go to your local Legal's restaurant near you (I see you're in DC; I'm pretty sure they're down there).

          Harvard beets? No, no, anything but that! :-) But many beets are crimson in color, so if you make any beet dish, it'll have the Harvard look.

          There used to be a Legal Seafoods in Washington's Union Station, I think. Haven't been there recently.

            There is a Legal's Seafood in Gallery Place/Chinatown now.

        2. I'd maybe go for Boston ideas, as Linda mentioned. Your cocktails, puff pastry, and clam chowder would itself be a nice lunch.

            In the Boston theme: Boston Cream Pie for desert

          2. Surely a hasty pudding for dessert.
