Will Students Sell & Buy Seats in Fully Subscribed Classes?

This phenomenon is already happening in one Canadian university. Will U.S. law schools encounter this unfortunate development?

  University of Toronto students desperate for scarce seats in fully booked classrooms are
offering cash to classmates willing to give up a spot, turning registration

“$100 to whomever drops (History of Modern Espionage),” posted Christopher Grossi on
Facebook Tuesday. “I really need this course.”

 The third-year history student said the 180-person course filled up before his
designated registration time. After talking to the professor without success,
he said offering money was his last chance to coax someone to trade with him.
