Apologies for not posting more lately; the graphic says it all. April is always a busy, busy month at law schools, and not just for students preparing for exams. Having said that, I would rather grade them than take them.
I have a number of posts on the way, including exam-taking advice ('tis the season) and advice for 3Ls still searching for jobs (at the request of a student at a law school on the East Coast). But in the meantime, please check out a recent article from the Chronicle of Higher Education called "Don't Give it Your Best." It's not about law school, but it is about the travails of finding a higher education teaching job, and the balance to be struck between classroom teaching and research. And it's a bit depressing. There's an awful lot I could say about it--such as regarding the tensions between interests of students versus teachers versus schools, what schools reward financially (hint: not always teaching or student support), and what helps you land that teaching job--but I will save it for another time when the swamp has been at least partially drained. Until then, any comments or thoughts from readers about this article are much appreciated.
