Shady is legalese

Bus. Orgs. Prof: Well Miss 2L, I am going to need a better legal argument than "it seems really shady," but that's a good start.

Get on the Pole

While talking about a law student who was featured in a Playboy video, the PR professor noted that her law school and state are now wondering whether she should be allowed to be admitted to the bar because of her behavior.

2L #1: Well, when my sister and I were arrested, our story was featured in Playboy. Does that mean that I shouldn't be allowed to take the bar?
2L #1: I mean, we weren't pictured or anything…
2L #2, jumping in: Well, some people might be more likely to hire her because she was in Playboy. I know I would.

Are you sure that last night is out of the statute of limitations?

Sitting in class last Thursday as the snow falls outside our window (following a week of temps in the upper 70's)

Prof: If I wanted to see white powder this time of year, I'd buy some fucking cocaine! Not that I've ever bought drugs. But if I did, the statute of limitations has long passed. Ok, let's talk about bribery!

What about law school tuition?

Torts professor: S&M aside... You don't go out and purchase pain and suffering.

You still buy into that attendance and participation myth?

Prof: Are you still in this class? I haven’t seen you in months.

1L: I still come to class.

Prof: Apparently not when there is a brief due.

But did he include painkillers?

RE: Clerking for Thomas during the Open Cannabis case

Prof: I tried to get him to listen to NWA but all he wanted to listen to was Rush Limbaugh. And he wouldn't include the word 'blunt' in his opinion either.

Two would involve a buffalo, live or stuffed, preferably stuffed for safety sake.

Prof: Sir, what is the "ultimate sex act"?

Student: Well, that's a personal call, and I really don't care what these people say.

After 4 drinks, it's the place to be

Con law prof: Is this case more like Buckley and Bowsher or are we in Myers, Humprhies Executor and Wiener land… Wienerland, that sounds kind of funny.

Except law might smell less rank

1L #1: Admitting to loving the law is like admitting to necrophelia.

1L #2: Mort main notwithstanding, I suppose.
