Was it corporations? That class is, at least here, surprisingly gunnery. Basically half the class doesn't go, and the other half is all up on the professor's d.

I was the only person to blow the janitor on the last day of 3L classes. I felt he contributed as much to my wellbeing as many profs, and got a lot less appreciation. I thanked him the best way I knew how.

Yeah, I don't get the ovations. In the majority of my classes, the teaching was awful. By virtue of the fact that professors almost never have to answer advanced questions in class, almost any recently graduated attorney could teach CivPro or Torts by staying one day ahead of the material with the help of their bar prep book. I've had elementary school teachers that deserve far more praise for the job they've done than a lot of law school professors. This probably sounds like some sort of Napoleon complex, but I'll give professors credit where it's due: They are usually way smarter than me, and far, far, far more accomplished than I will ever be. They're still not the greatest teachers, so the applause at the end of the class does little more than just tell them how successful they are, without speaking much at all to wisdom they've imparted upon students.

I just assume everyone claps in a "thank god this is over" kind of way.

But do you join in the applause?

True story, there were one or two dudes in my class that didn't clap. And a few of the worst people ever went off on how disrespectful and against long standing tradition, and how cool the tradition of applauding was, blah blah blah

I mean yeah I'd stand up and clap if the entire goddamn class was also doing it, for precisely that reason.

I felt like it was more a sense of self congratulations, like "I'm going to clap for this person because it makes me feel better about being a student of someone who is so important that I would clap for the professor. People elsewhere don't have professors that are so important you have to clap for them."

It was antitrust. The rest of the class clapped politely. It was honestly a great class, but man.

Nah it was way more worth it to hear the absurd indignation from the douchey students.

Yes. It's a good reminder that a lot of the criticism about law schools isn't really new (book was written in 1970). From IMBD:

Quote:
Susan Fields: You're going to pass, because you're the kind the law school wants. You'll get your little diploma. Your piece of paper that's no different than this [toilet paper roll]

Susan Fields: and you can stick it in your silver box with all the other paper in your life. Your birth certificate, driver's license, marriage license, your stock certificates, and your will...
