Law School Sure Has Changed...

Perhaps it is a significant upcoming b'day that has me a little spooked, but I was forcibly struck by how different law school must be now from when I was there (ending in 1997). I noticed that Adjunct Professor of Law Marc Randazza from the Barry School of Law now requires his students to post comments on a class blog, to the tune of 10% of the student's grades. That'll get the comments flowing!

At the University of Michigan, I remember some students having laptops, maybe 10-15%, and no particular awareness of what was happening on the web. "Online" primarily meant Westlaw and Lexis, which were offered free to students to get used to it.
