Dean Graber:

He has plans for the University of Maryland School of Law. With your help, he hopes to "completely makeover the law school in [his] 75 minutes of power."

This guy sounds almost Republican, or maybe moderate Democrat. I don't remember there being any of those on the faculty when I went to law school there.

He seems cynical to me; there are lots of those on every faculty.

This was absolutely hilarious. As a practitioner, I do believe that law school professors should spend some time in practice. Have you ever tried to explain the nuances of the the latest SCOTUS confrontation clause ruling to a a state court judge in an effort to limit the admission of certain evidence against your client?? While you are at it, be sure to cite a law review article with lots of footnotes.

In fact, he's quite liberal
But he's a political scientist more than a law professor

I guess EV snagged that law firm job just in time to dodge this bullet.

I know that at least one law prof. here knows the way to the courtroom. He was on the receiving end of the only civil mistrial by reason of incompetence of counsel of which I have ever heard. He simply could not ask a question properly. Ask a question -- it was compound. Rephrase it -- it was hearsay. Try again -- it was opinion, witness incompetent. After a couple of days of this the court gave up.

I think he taught trial practice at the time.

And be sure to discuss the positions of every jurisdiction, before allowing that there is a dispositive ruling from your own state supreme court....

But wasn't that pure dictum?

Biu's spam comment is the best one I've ever seen. Is there any less effective technique to draw traffic to a website than posting a link in a language that the majority of those visiting the website cannot read?

It doesn't matter if blog readers can understand it. The idea behind spam comments is that you want to raise the Google ratings of the website(s) mentioned in the comment. Google uses number of links to a site as a criteria in its ranking, and that determines whether, when someone googles for "viagra" or "medical supplies," which sites show up first and which are on page 11,203.

I've got my own blog set up to reject several thousand websites or key words, and it blocks several hundred comments per day, as I recall. Viagra, cialis, diabetic supplies, ringtones, purses, a thousand forms of porn, online gambling, you name it.
