"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well."

-Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.

For the Professors of Law Schools

Ezra Rosser, On Becoming “Professor”: A Semi-Serious Look In The Mirror, available at http://ssrn.com/abstract=1423138. Ezra (he hates it when students calls him professor) ruminate on the baggage of professorship in law schools. His attack ranges from the pseudo-intellectual academic writing which is obsessed with form and class structure within authors to the much hierarchical structure of academia in which one may eventually lose self.
