When law professors sue

Study on law professors as plaintiffs finds that they “generally do a poor job assessing their chances, for they lose much more often than they win.” Also, “many law professors are guilty of a shocking level of thin-skinnedness.” [Robert M. Jarvis, Albany Law Review via Caron/TaxProf]

  • A Georgia licensed attorney started teaching at our law school my 1L year. She rightly assumed that as a seasoned attorney, she could teach us legal writing and, why not, some tricks of the trade. However, she soon learned that Academics hold themselves up a little higher that practicing Attorneys. (Same reasonable person standard oddly, just kidding). Point is, she walked into a Law School, not a court. Today, she is in the process of obtaining a PHD in something educational based.
