Not sure what this has to do with "lefties?"
"new Provost (Dwight McBride, a professor of English and African-American studies, previously at Northwestern)" = lefty.

I'm guessing people in the law school are generally not happy since many of them view degrees ending with "studies" as a joke.

And a couple of other members have attended Emory LS. Yes, there are a lot of lefties there, but there are a fair number of conservatives, too.

And attending Emory gives you special dispensation or something?

Then you teach them what the law is, not what they want/think/feel/believe it should be.

Thomas M. Cooley

I could have had a full or nearly full scholarship to Thomas M. Cooley School of law.
I wasn’t put off by the weather in Michigan; I’m from Buffalo NY.
When I look at my student loan debt incurred at Emory, I wonder if I shouldn’t have gotten my legal education up north.

Emory, even the law school, is pretty hard Left / Progressive generally, with a possible exception in the area of taxation on businesses and regulation of business and industry.
Many law students are in favor of letting business owners have a free hand to build up their business.

Note the recent article by Torts professor Frank Vandall on how the Las Vegas shooting should prompt new gun control in the form of owners of semi-auto paramilitary rifles not being allowed to keep them at home, but must instead store them in a government run armory, to be checked out (with a small and carefully counted supply of ammo) daily and returned immediately after you leave the shooting range.

Was not WMU when I went. TMCLS was an independent non-affiliated school.

Side note, they have the largest (physically) J.D. degree in the country. Its about 26" by 32". Really makes an impression hanging on the wall.

I guess they figure that if 59% of graduates FAIL the bar exam, then at least they can have a really big-ass worthless piece of paper to hang on the wall.

Note to Nemo...this isn't directed to YOU or the graduates of years gone by...this is more of a comment directed to the f-ed up system that encourages too many law schools and too many students that aren't really suited for law school.

That bar exam is killer. Ask Hillary.
And Va is routinely recognized as one of the 5 most difficult in the nation.

Interesting side note. No law school education/graduation is required to sit for the bar here. Similar to what was done a couple hundred years back, 5 years or more of supervised study under Bar member who certifies you are ready is sufficient to be approved to take the exam.
