i hate when professors snare students with large amounts of reading without giving proper notice.
i'm taking an intersession class about intellectual property. we had to buy a 420-page textbook for it. the professor told me when i emailed him last week that we didn't have any reading for the first day, but i could read the first seventy pages or so if i really wanted to.
i knew where this was going. i knew it was going to be a trap. i was hoping that it wasn't, and that the professor actually was going to assign a reasonable amount of reading for a one-week class...but i've been in law school so long that i knew better. so...i read. i've read over 150 pages of the 420 page textbook. i was hoping it was overkill, but a little voice in the back of my head told me i needed to.
the voice was right. he came in today and told the class to read the whole book by thursday. that means i still have a lot to read, about 270 pages, but at least i don't have the whole thing to still finish.
stupid law school.
