Law Hawk rules at Georgia Law

Morning here at Dean Rusk Hall began with some spectacular swoops by Law Hawk.

For years, Law Hawk has stood guard at the University of Georgia School of Law. Seeing her is a good and awesome omen. As reported in 2012 by Red & Black, the university’s student newspaper:

“Law Hawk has unofficially been identified as a female, broad-winged hawk that spends most of her days perched in the dogwood trees outside the Law Library window on North Campus.”

This morning she explored the law school’s Dean Rusk Hall. The video above, by Administrative Assistant Nikki Clarke, finds Law Hawk first on a railing outside, then in full-wingspan flight. Moments later, she rose from the ivy grounds, startling an unsuspecting passerby.

Law Hawk’s appearances have generated her own Facebook page, plus a fearsome catchphrase:

“Ever vigilant. Never reckless. Always deadly.”

Oh, and did we mention our owl?
