Thanks fam.

That's a good question.  What I do is basically run all the Regional BLSA business for the 13 law schools in the NY Metro area. Plus, at some point during the fall semester, I have to travel to each school and sit in on their BLSA meetings and rap with the members of each chapter, see what's what, take any ?'s or concerns to the Head Director and stuff like that.  I also have to plan at least one activity, typically in the fall semester, that will bring all of the Metro chapters together.  This usually means a party.  Last semester, we all met up in lower Manhattan and had a good time at this club called Mission. A lot of the schools came out, it was a pretty good time. And then I also have to coordinate what they call "Judicial Friends" which is a basically an opportunity for law students to meet area judges, possibly get clerkships, stuff like that. So that's my job in a nutshell.  So any of you going to Law School in the New York City area will see me this fall at your school.

Oh yeah, Bubazzz - we are going to have one of the conferences in Upstate NY next year. They were talking about throwin it in Albany to get you guys more involved.  So be on the lookout!

Socratic Story of the Day:

Prof:    Perhaps a hypo would better demonstrate...
Gunner:  [raises hand eagerly]
Prof:    [puzzled look] :-\ Yes?
Gunner:  Well I think that in your hypo I agree that the majority would be correct.
Prof:    Well before you can agree I have to give the hypo first.
Gunner:  Oh.

Socratic NIGHTMARE of the day:

Token was to be on-call in K's today.  Last night, she looked on the syllabus, identified the assignment and read it.

Too bad that half-way through today's class, token realized that she had misread the syllabus and stopped ten pages short of the end of the assignment.  She had done a good deal of prepping for the part of the assignment she did read -- notes, book outline, casebrief, but, alas, the professor called on some other folks for that portion of the class discussion.  *&^%!  Token, panicking, decided that it would be better to do a piss poor job answering the questions than telling the whole class she's too damn blind to see the difference between pg. 550 and pg 560.  She scanned the matierial and did just that -- made a piss poor attempt to survive the Socratic grilling.

After class, in a piss poor effort to redeem herself in front of her favorite professor, she went to speak to him after class and explained what had happened.  She's an idiot, is blind, had to skim the cases while in class, etc.  Surprisingly enough, the professor told her she had done quite well for being disoriented and agreed to grant her another day on call. 

Whew!  Glad I don't go to Harvard.  My ass would be grass.

one of the worst i've seen:

Prof: ok, so why do u think that is? ::: points to some poor soul :::
Poor Soul 1: ::: silence :::
Prof: ok, what about u? ::: points to another poor soul :::
Poor Soul 2: well, because the courts look to good-faith
Prof: good answer, too bad its Bullsh!t ::: points to the first poor soul :::
Prof: ok, you've had enough time to think about it, so lets have it, give me this great answer that you had a minute or so to think about
Poor Soul 1: ::: silence :::
 ::: silence for 1 minute ::: (thats a long time when ur sitting there)
Prof: alright, lets have it Greg ::: points to the f'n gunner that always has his hand up :::
Greg: (gives some long explanation detailing the correct answer)
Prof: ::: points to poor soul 1 ::: now in 2 years, ur gonna have to pay him $200 an hour for that, cause u obviously won't be able to do it


The prof. was on a rampage that day, it was brutal. thank god i had gotten called on the day before.
