Who is the worst law professor?
« on: September 20, 2001, 04:59:22 PM »
So far my law school experience has been all about rankings...  It's all about LSAT percentile, Law Schools Rank, Law Firm Rank, etc.  There are even rankings of the best law school faculty.  What I'm wondering is, what is the worst?  More specifically, is there a particular professor that is dreaded more than any other?

Prof. Kingsfield for contracts.  Wait, he isn't real is he?

What do the current law students think about the movie Paper Chase anyway?  Is it reflective of reality at law schools today?  I mean, sure, it might be over the top in some ways - it is a fictional movie after all - but is the depiction of law school life generally or in some respect accurate?  Would you recommend pre-law students to see it before their 1L?

Watch it for fun if you want, but law school has been nothing like that, in my experience. And that's a good thing...

Before law school, I thought Paper Chase was interesting. When it came on tv during my winter break, I could hardly get through it. It is so unrealistic. The only realistic parts of the movie are the guy who can memorize the facts but can't apply the law (there are people like that in law school), people dropping out of law school in the first semester and the stress over outlines. But they went over the top about the outlining and you aren't supposed to split up the courses to outline. I didn't think the film was reflective of the reality at law school. You can see the movie for entertainment but don't put too much stock in it.

The author of the Paper Chase teaches at my school (contracts, I think). I've never had Osborn, but those who have tell me he's *not* the worst of the bunch.
