All in Crim Law

Prof: Why do you think that she was charged with aggravated child abuse, and not murder?
Student: Maybe they felt bad for her because of her status.
Prof: And what status would that be?
Student: She's just stupid.

Prof: What if a man put a bomb on a plane to kill his worst enemy. He only wanted to kill the one person. The plan worked, but everyone on the plane died. What should he be charged with for the killing of the others on the plane?
Student: Would it make a difference if it was Snakes on a Plane?

Prof: How would you like it if the police showed up at your house and put you in handcuffs
Student: Well, that might be fun

At the end of a Contracts class, "You know, I just Shepardized this case and there have been a LOT of cases that cite to it."

Property I

Prof: So does anyone have any questions about what I just said.

Gunner: Wait now just let me get this straight I know this was already said and it's written on the board, but the elements to adverse possession are....... (and then preceeds to read word for word exactly what is written on the board)

OR

Would I still be open and notorious if I snuck in and out of the land every time I had to leave and while I was one the land I lived in cave that was underground, trying to hide myself from the true land owner and then for the last year I put a little flag above ground then filed the claim for all my time on the land on a adverse possession claim.


These comments were said by the same person, in the same class.

My favorite though is the first day of 1L orientation, the prof running our little what is the constitution class says, so does anyone have any questions?

response:
             "Someone was telling me that the bar exam is really hard. Is the true how hard is the bar exam?"
 

professor:
              How about you just worry about getting through your first week of law school, you'll have plenty of time to worry about the bar exam in a few years.

Not dumb, and not 1L, but worthy of a post:

Corporations Prof - "and here we see a good policy situation for the ol' Learned Hand Job."

It has already become legendary.

Talking about intentional infliction of emotional distress in class, the prof. posed a hypothetical about a black woman walking into a hair salon and being told they don't "do black hair."

Student A: Well, what if they really don't know how to do black hair?

Student B: Yeah, that's like taking a Volkswagon into a BMW dealership.

Class: Stunned silence

Property (doing an IP section at the end of the semester), discussing celebrities right to publicity.

Professor: are there any good societal impacts from celebrity publicity?

StudentA: it encourages others to pursue celebrity themselves, earning money which passes to their heirs.

ME: Wait, why is that good?

StudentA: because it puts money into the economy and society.

ME: It also puts Paris Hilton into society. You want to encourage that?


I had fun with that one. lol
