As previously mentioned mentioned earlier, more from James D. Gordon’s so true it’s not funny How not to Succeed in Law School (.pdf)

If you want to know what kind of people law professors are, ask yourself this question: “What kind of a person would give up a salary of a jillion dollars a year in a big firm to drive a rusted-out Ford Pinto and wear suits made of old horse blankets? Think about this carefully before asking your professor’s opinion on any subject.”


Politics are often divisive at law schools. IN the 1960′s, the faculties were conservative and the students were liberal. In the 1980′s, the students were conservative and the faculties were liberal – the professors having spent their formative years as members of the Grateful Dead entourage. The 1970′s were a difficult transitional period during which, for an awkward moment, faculties and students were able to communicate. They discovered that they did not like each other.
