Probably a stupid question

Postby IamJosh » Mon Aug 01, 2011 12:41 am

I also ask way too many, but hey, here goes...

Do any schools post podcasts of old law classes? Audio or video. I'm a big iTunes U fan, but can't really find anything on there other than law school events. I can see reason why for undergrad classes they'd just post them but maybe for law they wouldn't, but I wasn't sure if anyone had a source or if it simply isn't done.

All my professors had something in their syllabus about not recording classes.

I have a stupider question:
Why do you want to listen to old recordings of now senile professors?

Okay, thanks.

I suppose "old" was the wrong word. I meant from a year or two ago. And the idea was to get a feel for what a law classroom was like. I later found that Berkley's webcast website has some from 2008 and 2009 on environmental stuff. Unless those professors are dead now or something.

It's a classroom. Usually large, and a bunch of people sit and listen to an overpaid person speak for a certain amount of time. If you're lucky, they won't call on people. If you aren't, they will abuse you for fun.

If you've done 4 years of undergrad, then you probably have a pretty solid grasp of what it's like, unless you never went to class.
