As I write, my students at the DePaul University College of Law are taking my Business Organizations exam. Because I visited at other law schools in Fall 2010 and this Fall, I have not taught contracts in two years. I miss it, but I had a great deal of fun with the DePaul students. They were very accepting of me despite the fact that I now have very long hair (for a business law professor) and I banned all use of laptops and electronic devices during class. As a result, my class had a rather unorthodox look to it, as the picture at right illustrates.
Somehow, a tradition developed in my afternoon class that one of the students would draw a little picture on the attendance sheet. But when I picked up the attendance sheet after the last day of class, there was no picture. I immeidately protested. After class, a student, who would neither confirm nor deny that he had drawn the previous pictures (the outcome of forensic testing is pending), drew a snowman holding a sign. On the sign, he wrote the following:
At first, I thought Telman a kook,
He looks like Jesus and no Facebook
But despite my apprehension
I actually paid more attention.
That Telman's okay in my book.
