Torts Prof: "1928 was an important year. Does anyone know why?"
Students: ... Finally someone raises their hand.
Prof: "Okay, why was 1928 important?"
Student: "You were born...?"
"Dude, you really shouldn't rely on blind grading that much, sometimes I cheat!"
Torts Prof. "I flunked out of rabbinical school. So I know some stuff about some stuff."
Torts again: Student is in the middle of being cold called and semi-freaking out (third day of class), his phone starts ringing loudly. He starts stumbling to silence the phone while continuing to answer the question.
Prof: "I bet if you were outside in the hallway, you would have silenced that phone in one second. Gotta love torts stress."
Crim Prof: "I know this is your favorite class- in the first week I gave you rape, murder, and cannibalism."
Crim again: "So, what did the court say about his previous interactions with this woman?"
Student: "He had sex with her in a whore house in Detroit, twice."
Prof: Laughing uncontrollably and blushing.... "Sorry, I spent all summer locked up with my kids watching PBS."
Legal Writing Prof: "I assigned you this book because I think it is a really good model for writing memos. But don't write memos the way it tells you to, it's wrong."
Another Legal Writing gem: "If I was dictator of the world, I'd burn all the Bluebooks. As it is, I just try to pretend it doesn't exist."
I had dinner at my Ks profs house with a few other students. Her husband walked in.
Ks profs husband: I'm glad you got to meet me before you took her for family law. In that class, I am the abusive, alcoholic husband and dead beat dad."
Ks prof: "Yeah, one time we were at a conference and a former student met him at the bar. When he introduced himself, the student said 'Hey, I know you. You're an asshole and I hate you.'
