Law school, y u so liberal & intolerant?

Postby BigRob » Mon Nov 04, 2013 11:03 pm

"Third-trimester abortion should probably be illegal."

"GO FUCK YOURSELF, NAZI"

And that was my professor.

what was most outrageous was when my professor, man, the gall that one has, suggested the statute of frauds, THE STATUTE OF FRAUDS, was indeed just that - a fraud.

My legal writing prof tonight said you are morally bankrupt if you use 2 spaces instead of 1 after a period. I believe this is an attack on traditional American values

Why in the fuck did you not use this opportunity to go Socratic on the prof?

Why voice your opinion on a controversial issue in class, instead of just sticking to talking about the judicial opinion?

Because they dont pay taxes yet and have been around the government benefits all their life such as schools. Once you go to the private sector that all changes, the brain washing ends

Hah, this thread made me think of when some kid in Federal Income Taxation decided to call Mitt Romney an "idiot" on the first day of class. Politics aside, I don't think it's smart to call a guy with a J.D./M.B.A. from Harvard an idiot when you're just some prick at a school only just in the T50. But that's just my opinion. Lol

My professor made us do a paper on how Obamacare should be deemed constitutional. I bet that one really hurt the Republicans in the class.

My contracts professor wrote a few amicus briefs for the SC against the constitutionality of Obama care.

I'm the first to admit that the one-dimensional nature of the law school experience served to stifle genuine debate on various topics. But at the same time, I can't understand why your view on when abortions should or should not be legal is at all relevant to your class discussion.

Not OP (obviously), but we had a discussion about the legality of abortion in my Constitutional Law class and our professor was asking for our opinions. I suggested that, though I understood the reasoning, it was unsettling that a woman could decide to abort our child irrespective of my hypothetical desire to have the child yet, if a woman wanted to have a child and I didn't, I was powerless and could be forced to support the child (financially, at least). I was promptly called ignorant by a female classmate.


I made a similar comment that it is odd that the father cannot sign a waiver of all rights and obligations, as long as an abortion would have been legal at that time in that state.

Hmm I hadn't considered that argument/thought before. Makes sense to me though. But, then again, we (as males) aren't the ones carrying a parasite, aka fetus, for 9 months of hell (or, so it seems).

Not to be a dick but you're not powerless. Pregnancy is the result of a voluntary action: sex. You both take that risk when you have sex and should consider the consequences. If you don't want to pay for the support of a child get some damn good contraception or don't have sex. Giving an ultimatum of "have an abortion or you're on your own" seems unfair. It's a medical procedure that can have serious complications. Unless she poked a hole in the condom or something, why should the burden be completely on the woman?

So you're a proponent of the "conniving bitch" exception to the rule. (I think "forgetting" to take the pill is more common than condom-poking, btw.)
