I would say typically with regard to pro bono cases schools have no problem with, but with regard to another source of income they sometimes wont allow you to do it.

they typically give professors a certain amount of money to go to conferences, buy books, hire RAs, pay for bar dues, etc.  This is the professional development fund.

Yes, they pay for bar dues, but generally that comes out of your faculty development fund.  No 0% finance on mortgages unless you are some superstar that they want very badly (i.e., I have not heard of that before, but done rule it out).

Perks - depends on what you think of as perks, but some of the good things I like are, no teaching over the summer or Christmas break, hundreds of dollars a year book fund, travel to conferences (such as england, germany, puerto rico, canada, africa, etc.), some schools will let you do some side practice

How are you LP?  It has been a minute.

LOL.  I am doing pretty good.  how are you doing?  Yes, it has been a minute.  I have been keeping busy with class. What have you been up to?

I'm hanging in there.  I've been doing much of the same.  Trying to figure what I want to do after this dog and pony show is over.

That is good to hear.  I hope you are enjoying your classes.  Do the teaching thing.  All things considered, it is the best job a lawyer can have.

'cause he hatin' on us.

Yeah, I noticed.  Whats up with that?  Some clown who writes on IP now thinks he can write on race.  I am glad I know now that I have it better than white men in finding a law teaching job. ::)
