My law professor just asked for a volunteer who liked wine. I raised my hand but he picked someone else.

Asked a few questions about a case.. then gave him a bottle of 2002 Joseph Phelphs Insignia.

sigh.

Well, something is wrong and I suggest you change Profs quickly! Either he is: too generous, too stupid, something going on behind the scenes, you'll be taught to give away your earnings, or you will be taught to be stuck in a pro bono practice. Eek
Tips for having an "Old Skool" law professor (the kind that will humiliate you at the drop of a hat and/or have no compuction about throwing you out of class):

Stay quiet and keep your head low. Never come in late. Don't move around a lot or wear bright colors. Also, never accept a gift from a professor that will make you readily identifiable. Even "Case Notes" won't help you if you do.

haha luckily this professor is just a generous guy.

and i'm lucky to have no "old school" professors this semester, most of them are generally "younger".
I have almost the exact opposite experience/advice then MiamiAtty does. I chose to sit in the 4th row, directly in front of the lectern in all the classes that I could in law school. That way I was forced to actually know what I was doing (at least that was the thought). What I discovered, and this worked well for me later in each semester and as the professors got to know you better.

I would answer early and often when I knew the answer and then when the hard stuff came at the end, they never even looked at me since I had already answered 'enough' questions for each class.

Of course, the only professor that I had offering things was a beer after class.

A couple things I forgot to mention:

1) Make friends with the student who got the bottle.

2) Find ways to let the prof know you are a wine aficionado!

Best wishes.


#1: i don't think he knows what he has in his hands
#2: oh he knows. We have discussed.

weee
