FWIW, profs feel differently about this. Strangely, they think that what they have you do in class helps you learn. (I mean, I know people here generally disagree, but at least give it to the profs that they think they're helping, or they wouldn't waste their time doing it/assigning it.)
I also have a lot of friends who've kicked everyone out of class for not being prepared. Not in law school, though.
