Super Lawyers

My Lawyers in Movies course is offered through the Undergraduate Academies at UB, an interesting program that offers, in addition to seminars like mine, a variety of other sorts of educational experiences. I'm only involved to the extent that I teach classes through the program: I am thought of there as law faculty (as I am at the law school). I mention the program because it seems to me to be doing worthwhile work (in addition to allowing me to do work I find pleasant), and because I was impressed by this list of "48 Good Books". Unlike most lists of this sort I haven't read most of these books, but they all look pretty good. I've often had occasion to think that life as an undergraduate at UB might be pretty alienating: it is big, and it is sprawling, and although it pains me to say it, it is one of the ugliest university campuses I have ever seen. On the other hand, there are nifty programs like the Undergraduate Academies, and in my my experience-- extending now, as student, alumnus, and adjunct faculty-- the people are helpful, friendly and engaged. It also seems to me that most of my students seem pretty happy to be there. Come to think of it, I pretty much always have been too.

About 23% - worse if it wasn't for all those Africans and Indians. Thanks, Ann Arbor.
Yeah, your Ann Arbor experience is all that brought my percentage up as well.
