All over the nation, school years are coming to a close, and many law school graduates have just left teachers and classrooms—well, aside from bar exam prep—behind them forever.

So this week, at the suggestion of a reader, we’d like to ask you to tell us about the best law school professor you ever had (or have had so far, if you’re still a law student). How did he or she make an impact on you?

Featured answers:

Posted by DCW: “I’m a young male associate. I do not curse in the company of partners and senior associates, and never at work. I will use the occasional curse word at social outings with other associates. I think that it is unprofessional at work and, when used in anger at work, it really shows an inability to cope with a situation. In essence, it’s a sign of weakness. Around here, that’s a bad thing.”

Posted by John Davidson: “There is another family lawyer that I’ve been dealing with for over four years. Rather then have in-your-face angry phone calls, we just start off with a quick ‘FU’ to which the other replies, ‘FU.’ After that, we settle down and get down to business.”
