Adjunct Law Professor Bud Selig!!-Shame on Marquette Law School

Bud who? Bud Selig, the Commissioner of Baseball and former owner of the Brewers is now an adjunct professor of law at Marquette University Law School of Law. Only problem is that Selig is not a lawyer. Think he may have some connections? You can read about in the National Law Journal and at MSNBC.

I think this is a total disgrace to law professors and am disappointed in Marquette Law School. No doubt Mr. Selig is an accomplished professional and no doubt that he can be an asset to any school by an occasional lecture about some of his experiences. But it is quite another thing to teach a class to students learning to be lawyers and to evaluate students, i.e., grade them.  Law school is not business school and I am sorry to say that this appears to be a publicity stunt by Marquette Law School.

This is downright comical, if not outright insulting to the students. Would a medical school allow NBA Commissioner David Stern teach a class on orthopedics, because of his experience in dealing with players with knee injuries? Additionally, this is just one more example of the alarming disconnect between law school administration and the actual practice of law.

Many adjuncts are becoming unionized - what would Selig do if Marquette's adjuncts vote to form a union?
