Thanks guys, that helps. I'll try to keep some perspective....

Many states (I don't know how many) base their criminal laws on the MPC. They may base some of their statutes on the MPC entirely or not at all. Because many students will come to the law school from different states and then return, the MPC is something they are interested in teaching. You will also find the same thing when you take Professional Responsibility. The class will be centered around the Model Rules of Professional Conduct because many states use that to fashion their own rules.Thank you - that makes sense!
Because that's what your professor wants.And a 'welcome to the message board' to you too.
Don't get caught up in whether you think it's a good way to teach criminal law. Your professor is going to test you on the Model Penal Code, so suck in your frustration and just do it.
