I know that students are excited by the first week of classes, but really, what’s up with people who think they’re star lawyers already?
There is an older gentlemen who sits up front and center in my Torts class. So far, he’s managed to raise his hand, stand up, and try to argue like he’s been doing it for years, complete with legal jargon and vocabulary. No kidding.
On Friday, my professor obviously had enough. He proceeded to stop him in mid sentence, and called him out on his “knowledge”.
“Let me tell you something”, my professor said. “You have no idea what you’re talking about right now, so relax. Maybe in three years when all is said and done, you can tackle such statements, but until then, save yourself the embarrassment. Now sit down.”
