Well, I survived my first class last night. Contracts, with professor Teemu Ruskola (it’s Finnish). We did lots of hypothetical scenarios involving promises of pens and party invitations and explored some of the different theories behind contract law. Interesting subject matter.
It’s really starting to hit home that the left side of the bell curve didn’t get accepted to law school (at least not at WCL with me). Even the people who sit in the back of the room seem like they’re sharp and up on the class readings. This is in stark contrast to my last brief foray into evening grad school, an Organizational Behavior class with a bunch of government workers looking to pad their resumes (and their salaries) with another degree.
I stayed up until midnight reading for my Legal Rhetoric class tonight (and I’m still not quite done). Looks like no free time for a while.
The Tofu Hut has a link to a really good funky protest song, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings doing “What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes?”. Imagine, if we didn’t give the government money to prosecute wars, how would they pay for the bombs? Hmm…
Tonight is Torts and Legal Rhetoric. Whee!
