And now, for something completely different [in the law school publications wars]


I enjoyed Brian Leiter's comments about SUNY-Buffalo's latest publication (here). Having recycled my share of "law porn" this year, I'm actually looking forward to reading Buffalo's publication.

BTW, for those of you who said that I seemed a tad bitter about UH's 2004-2007 faculty publications PR piece, fair 'nuff. I am a tad bitter. The last few years at UH were brutal for me--so bad that it's taken me over a year to recover even this much from the experience. But I'll get over it. Life in Sin City is gooooooooood, and life at the Boyd School of Law is simply marvelous.

Are you really still not over your meltdown at UHLC? Geez. We at the school certainly are. Enjoy your bottom-tier, also-ran, unranked law school professorship.

I should point out that last comment does NOT reflect the general feelings of the UHLC community and offers a rather pathetic illustration of the degree to which the rankings have deformed our understanding of the role of education.

Yep, what Luke said. Odds are pretty good that the above poster isn't/wasn't even at UHLC. Everyone there has just let the whole issue die away -- it's been over for two years to everyone but Rapoport. $5 says her name hasn't even been mentioned on campus since 2006, and there are now two classes of students that effectively never even heard of her. QED. Hope she's doing well and is happy with the new gig. Maybe the bitterness will soon go away for her like it has for the campus.
