UM Law Liberal Bias Wrapup

Well friends the end is near. Final summary of the latest UM Law liberal biases on my mind:

Racism:

Prof. D. Marvin Jones continues to write about white racism towards minorities, but what about hatemongering towards white males? White males are attacked by UM student organizations, and Jones sleeps.

Republican Supporters:

Prof. M. Froomkin loves to imply that misbehaving Republican supporters proves his "point" that liberals have the moral high ground. Oddly, he never seems to notice when liberals behave like animals.

Due Process:

Liberal ex-Yalie UM Law profs are obsessed with the Padilla case, insistent that every legal avenue available to release bloodthirsty terrorists are explored and capitalized on, and that the government is chastised any time it pursues the prosecution with too much zeal. But if you're just a run-of-the-mill white boy with no ties to terrorism, if the State overzealously hounds you it seems the bulldogs don't feel its an issue worth speaking out about. Would their attitude towards the Padilla case be any different if the only evidence against him was the testimony of a stripper with a criminal past?

Labor:

Strike posts below speak for themselves. Although I will say there is something amusing about watching Komerades Fischl and Casebeer keep Shalala off balance. I disagree with their position, but you have to tip your hat when an underdog puts up a good fight. I also respect them for actually taking action, unlike most of the ivory towered liberals here who feel the way to solve perceived social problems is to pen obscure law review articles.

Conclusion:

Nothing has changed since 1L. If anything, faculty has become more liberal and more biased. Fortunately they still grade fairly, and usually give students a chance to speak and argue in class. However, I have noticed that conservative students are becoming more and more annoyed by the bias.

    Just a sec before we "wrap it up." Since when are academics not overwhelmingly liberal? This is generally the trend in academia. You have to be living under a rock not to know that. And what support do you proffer for the idea that the professors, if anything, might be becoming "more liberal?" What's "more" liberal? Another book? Are the students are becoming "more annoyed"? or is this an attempt to stir the pot? Last time I checked they were IMing. Let's be real--students on the whole have accepted the faculty's liberalism and the conservative student body (which is indisputably and overwhelming majority) is in no way allowing the professors to even challenge their thinking about their pre-existing views. You should be complaining about the fact that the liberal faculty doesn't (on the whole) encourage better "law and politics" discourse in their teaching of the law. Maybe if they made beter efforts to encourage critical thinking about the law, liberal and conservative students alike might stop IMing and playing solitare.
