Professor James Adams of Drake University teaches Evidence at the law school. He has apparently taught there for 35 years. These are his words, from his faculty profile:
Secondly, this “Ellis and Nelle Levitt Distinguished Professor of Law” has helped reel in so many unsuspecting small fry and big fish from small ponds. I imagine he has done so in a "distinguished" manner. Actually, I have seen this man in action. He teaches Evidence and he apparently lives to instill the fear of God in his students. He actually seems to have contempt for his students - maybe it is because we were not smart enough to get into a T14 school. What is so noble about cutting down law students? I suppose the school feels that length of teaching indicates prominence.
Lastly, the law school industry thrives on the old bait and switch. The schools aggressively bill themselves as providing stellar legal educations which will in turn produce successful, financially secure lawyers who will be able to use their law degrees to help better society. They put out incomplete, distorted and false salary info and job statistics. They do so to lure in unsuspecting law students. Damn, James. I could not have said it better myself. Up the creek, indeed.
