As I've made clear in prior postings, I place a pretty high premium on teaching ability. And we know law students love ranking things because it's "prestigious" to categorize and classify; it is, after all, the "law school way."
So, pursuant to a tipster's advice, we're pleased to announce our efforts to perpetuate the obsession with rankings by starting our own competition to determine who the "best" law school professor is--based on classroom performance, of course.
Here's how it works: e-mail us or leave us a comment to this posting nominating a professor. Be sure to specify what school the professor teaches at. In a week or two, we'll put everything together and create a poll of some kind. We'll pull the top five professors from that poll into another poll, and will determine--from there--who our readers think should be crowned "Blackbook's Top Law Prof."
Here's your chance to grade your professors...enjoy!
