Cash for Class "Deplorable" at NYU Law School
NYU Law School Vice Dean Liam Murphy recently emailed all students to warn them that the law school is cracking down on the "deplorable practice" of students exchanging cash or goods for class registration spots, explaining "Places in law school classes are not the property of the enrolled student. Sanctions will be imposed on any seller of a class place and any student who buys a place from another student will be withdrawn from the class."
Above the Law, which published Dean Murphy's email, has this to say: "C'mon, Dean Murphy -- don't you teach contracts? Isn't this a learning experience? Why are you cracking down on a bunch of enterprising law students who are applying law-and-economics principles to their daily lives?"
And the reason for not scheduling additional Fall offerings of the same course to meet the demand is ... oh never mind. [JH]
