Welcome

Thanks for stopping by my little place on the web. This parking spot is not for me to rant (though there will certainly be some of that), but as a place for my former and current students to converse about the full gamut of law school questions and about the class assignments and goals: you know I feel that conversation is the best learning experience.

So, follow. Check in every few days and chat away: anything is fair game (remember, I live vicariously through all your wild lives). To start, some of you already in law school can express some wisdom since decision time is beginning to arrive for this year’s seniors, and those of you currently being abused can ask the world your questions about the class assignments.

This is for you. Enjoy.

-Prof. B.

Sometimes even prosecutors write well:

And how's this for statutory construction?

This is the "grouper" case - how can there be such disparate readings of the statute? what does it teach you about argumentation?

And, sometimes, lawyers should just keep their mouths shut . . .
