Oh, what about the guy that repeatedly just blurts out a long commentary without getting called on.  (Usually in the front row, with others raising hands behind him)

Or the very close cousin of "Mr. Voluntary Commentary" mentioned above (quite possibly the same person):

THE "LOUD KNEE JERK"
When the professor attempts a thought-provoking question like, "So do you think Justice Brennan's argument was valid?"

The guy who blurts out, "No!"

Of course when the professor then feels obligated to ask the guy to elaborate, he just acts surprised, stammers, "uh"s, and fails to articulate any kind of reasoning to support his boldly vocal opinion.

Repeat this scenario several times a week.

I've got one just from today: The guy in your class who is on the Mock Trial team (even though his grades suck), and tries to argue with the Professor, and says "Sorry, I'm on the trial team..."

Friggin tool.

Do people seriously chat online during class? I'm soon to be a 1L and find that concept flabberghasting!

Yes it happens. All the time.  I limit myself to IM conversations with other mameber of the class and we at least talk about class stuff.
