The Light at the End of the Tunnel

By Yungmoon, 2E

Law school professors are generally notorious for being demanding, tough, and unrelenting. I know I have certainly felt pushed to do my very best this year in terms of preparing for class and turning in my best work. But this month, the 1E's saw a softer side of the enigma that is The Law School Professor.

Prior to the submission of our last Legal Writing brief, Professor Dudovitz brought us candy to keep us going down the homestretch.

The day after our deadline, Professor Trisolini brought us cookies in Property class. Afterwards, Professor Scott gave us a break from Socratic method and did not force anyone to be on the hot seat. And, in an unprecedented move, she even offered students the opportunity to leave class early and listen to the class recording later.

Finally, two days after our deadline, Professor Dudovitz brought us pizza in class.
Life as an evening student is difficult. Many of us work full-time and take four classes each semester. While our professors' gestures were appreciated at face value (especially because so many of us were in desperate need of sugar), what meant the most to us was that they recognized our hard work and efforts.

And that recognition, with a little sugar, is just what we need to keep us going through to the end of finals.
