This Week's Greedy Links Have Been Put on "Shuffle"

The week ends, as usual, with a sampling of links, presented today with no general organizing principle.  You'll have to find the meaning in all this on your own:

  • Attention, Syracuse Law cheaters: your fellow students are not going to be happy about having to hold it during exams.  (The Post-Standard via ABA Journal)
  • Law professors are obviously bored with the SCOTUS nominee speculation, so they're changing the hypo: the WSJ Law Blog sums up a spirited discussion among law bloggers in which the high court nomination process is used to gauge the value of the Socratic method.
  • SubtleDig cooked up a set of Law School Party Rankings. Justice O'Connor is no doubt thrilled to have bestowed her name upon the winning institution.
  • Class of 2011, everyone says you're screwed, including The Recorder, which reports that firms are already lining up to drop their 2010 summer programs.  (But cf. above item about how your federal loans will be discharged upon death. So you've got that going for you.)
  • Admission: we did not get all the way through this longish piece in The Legal Workshop, but we feel reasonably sure that Professor Anita Bernstein had some interesting things to say about training law students for the real world.
