Sometimes the Jokes Just Write Themselves

From this mornings' law.com headlines:

"Supreme Court Wowed by Playboy Playmate's Case"

One of the choice reax from an esteemed law prof:

"Most people will do a double take," said Edward Morrison, a former Supreme Court clerk who specializes in bankruptcy law at Columbia University.

I bet they will, Ed, I bet they will.

So, have any 2L's gotten their rank yet? I second Tom's point in the previous blog post. Would have posted it there, but something's busted with the "comments" link.

Nope.

Why don't they just post it to a website, so we can check it when/if we want.

Maybe if we all post enough about registrar and grade type complaints, someone in the administration will read it and will actually consider making a change.

Probably not though.

I say, Complain away on this blog!! Don't stop complaining!! It's a great way of pressuring the administration into self-improvement. The administration certainly does read the comments on the blog. Edley himself referenced a key complaint that surfaced on the blog. And they know (or should know or are learning to know) it's not Armen who posts most of the comments (so Armen, please don't worry about being blamed for anything; you're 100% unblameworthy for anything you don't write!).

Remember, Boalt doesn't have a weekly newspaper. The press has the effect of pressuring institutions into improvement. This is the closest thing we've got as a shame tool. I don't see how the Boalt admin, which, I hope, wants to recruit the best students, can be happy that there's a vibrant blog out there loaded with graphic, highly detailed complaints about the school.

Yeah, Armen wants us to post on the discussion board. That may happen. But, let's face it, Armen, you started this one first and it's gained a cult following and momentum. You should be proud.

Sure, Boalt doesn't have enough money. Yadda, yadda. BUt that doesn't mean that we should lie on this site and suppress our complaints. Lean non-profits that have even tighter budgets than Boalt can manage to be more efficient. Boalt can too. And, at worst, Boalt can use student complaints/comments as ammunition for the Regents that Boalt needs money to keep students satisfied that they are getting their $80-$100,000 worth.

I have no problem with constructive complaints, but I can't agree with one part of your post: the "yadda yadda" part. That's very early-90s. The preferred term for lawyers is now "bla bla bla."

Do you guys honestly believe that the low-level administrators at Boalt that make our lives annoying care about what Boalt students post anonymously on a blog? If so, I have a really good deal on a bridge for you.
