There's some photoshopped "Shar'ia for Dummies" pics around the 'net, but they were too racist for me to post.

All I have to say is that I clicked this thread and then laughed because DF was the OP.

1) Sorta
2) I had the prof last semester and I understand her lectures well
3) I heard 50% A's 50% A-'s. Probably an exaggeration but still.

It's enjoyable so far but I dunno about trusting my note taking ability and there is no casebook.

you're a 1L and you're allowed to take this? does the grade count on your gpa for employment purposes?

if yes to the previous question -> how early did you have to sign up to beat out the other 300 1Ls who want the class?

this is far outside my ken so i have no ability to help you with this matter, but this definitely gets the stamp of incredulous/hilarious approval.

NU 1L's get to take electives. Any class under 40 people doesn't get curved. So there were still open spots in the class. That's the beauty of it. Unpopular classes don't get curved. I used two out of 800 bid points.

holy crap

i dont know why you guys think this is so incredulous, i would think that under this system every 1L would be desperately trying to fill up on as many of these classes as possible. i know i would be, unless employers knew the system well enough that they'd exclude the grades when looking at your transcript

assuming that uncurved = easy A, which may not always be the case i guess

People don't think about it. Get wrapped up in taking the courses they want to. But by 2L they figure it out.

My other class is Intellectual Property which is what I want to do so my transcript will look pretty legit. Luckily that class is under 40 too, and filled with LLMs.

Dude, seriously. I don't think anything on TLS has made me laugh this hard in a while.

Though this is so ... DF.

1 out of 800 for 14th. It's also uncurved. It also doubles for con law. Feel the power, mofo.

flesh and blood trolling

I like it


[FWIW I used the same take the least popular class strategy this year, ended up in Immigration Law class w/ 20 or so students (so no mandatory curve) and it turned out to be interesting so all in all not bad. Everyone else was all about tax, enviro, employment... I thought F that let them gun it out w/ each other in there, I'll chill out w/ the PI hippies]
