(Newser) – Students cramming in the library at Emory Law School this week are getting some unusual stress relief. Therapy dogs were dispatched to lower the blood pressure of students studying for finals, reports WXIA in Atlanta. Stressed-out students "get relief by petting a dog, loving on a dog, and thinking of anything but exams for a few minutes," says one of the dogs' caretakers. Yale's law school apparently does the same. (Memo to students: Even if you pass those finals, you might need more dogs.)
