Don't think JdS was serious, but getting a PhD with the sole goal of teaching law is ludicrous, and I think that Levinson should consider a working forsome CSO given how optimistic he seems to be (Oh, once you get hired [which everyone with realistic credentials apparently does], it's easy to move to a good location/better school... but then why exactly is anyone teaching at TTTs in shitty locations, again?).
And please, can a mod talk to Scally? His/her m.o. seems to be to make ignorant statements, get called on them, excuse those comments on the basis of ignorance and good intentions, then self-righteously demand an apology from those calling out his/her ignorance.
I was +1'ing the idea of academia as another option for using a law degree. Granted, it's extremely difficult to pull off, but it can be added to a list of "law" jobs that might satisfy OP.
You could have just said "pretty sure JdS was kidding around" and I could have said "well maybe the PhD is silly, but the idea of academia is worthy of note"
bwv812, I am participating in this thread in a genuine effort to help OP, while you are apparently on a crusade against me, and have made it a hobby to attack me at every chance you get for trivial matters, de-railing thread after thread. Perhaps we should get together for some angry sex? Or maybe a duel to the death? Perhaps a beer and a game of darts?
For the record, you're absolutely wrong about my m.o.:
I have appreciated all the times that people have offered information
to alter/correct/broaden my knowledge.
did I ask for an apology, and I did not demand it: I asked either for a response, or for an apology, and the post in question did not "call out my ignorance", but rather told me to "drop it", it being a question about school vs school comparisons, on the sole ground that all such comparisons are worthless. I already explained this in great detail, but your flagrant misrepresentation of the situation has dragged me, yet again, to defend myself at the expense of a fine thread.
Think long and hard about which of us is being more disruptive.
