Entertainment: Scalia is not a fan
UPDATE 2: Jeffrey Selbin's Repsonse.
UPDATE: Lawrence D. Wood and Richard M. Wheelock's response (they teach Chicago's Law and Poverty class) and Peter Edelman's response (Georgetown).
I am not sure how to categorize this but Scalia is not a fan of poverty law classes... on the positive side perhaps ironically his lack of poverty law background is itself an indication of how important the class is. Here is what the Chicago Sun-Times reported about a recent talk by Scalia:
"I took nothing but bread-and-butter classes, not "Law and Poverty," or other made-up stuff, Scalia said to laughter. He said his advice to law students was: "Take serious classes. There's so much law to learn. Don't waste your time."
The full story is here.

Law and economics, on the other hand, is no doubt serious, real-world stuff.

Funny, saying that at a school known for "Law & Economics," another intellectually weak made up, mash up subject.
