The opinions and writings of a stoic Libertarian hasher lawyer.
Truer words were never spoken
Our Criminal Law professor requires a short paper for the term in addition to the traditional end-of-semester exam. While he was answering questions about the paper, a fellow classmate asked whether the paper should be as extensively footnoted as a law review article (where there is typically a 1:1 ratio between text and footnotes).
The professor replied:
"Absolutely not. Law review is primarily designed to identify those future lawyers who are interested in slavery."
