The Law Troll

The Law Troll

The Law Troll of Northwestern University © 2008

The older Law School building at Northwestern University’s downtown campus has an interior courtyard, full of benches, flowers, mother ducks and their ducklings in spring, and…the law troll. He’s a charming fellow who greets everyone as they enter the outdoor garden.  He has a stern look, but he seems to take a lot of ribbing without moving a  muscle. Rather a charming sort in an old fashioned way.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. This ‘law troll’ has real it!

  2. My what a big head you have, sir…

  3. He looks pretty stern. Do I have to pay to cross his bridge?

  4. Awesome – I love it.

  5. Do they really call him a “Troll”. If so, that’s more self deprecating humor than than I’ve ever noticed in a lawyer.
