You see Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care.

The message below came via email from our esteemed SBA it just me or does it kind of scream "Office Space?" I had to change the name of the consultant to protect the innocent, but it was TOTALLY an "Office Space" name so I changed it to a character's name from the movie.

I really just want to go and be like "Right now I have FOUR different professors Bob, FOUR! When I don't do the reading I have four different people hassling me about it and all that really motivates me to do is go right to the bookstore and buy a supplement so I won't have to read. Truthfully Bob, I only work hard enough not to fail out and be forced to get a job and pay back my loans." Strategic planning process? C'mon...we're still on QUARTERS and no one has been able to get that fixed despite consistent student activism aimed at moving us to semesters...but hopefully Bob will make it happen. At least we can rest easy knowing that finally those damn TPS reports will have the right coversheet.

Help us make the law school a better place for students!

Students will meet with Bob Slydell again on Monday, November 15th from 12:30-2:00 in the Library Conference room (L142). Mr. Slydell is a consultant the law school has hired to guide us through the strategic planning process, which will identify the priorities, goals, and direction for our school. Meeting with Mr. Slydell is the students' chance to have our voices heard in this important process. So, if you have something about which you are concerned, or an important area that you would like to see improved or developed, (such as curriculum reform, switching to semesters, concentration tracks, and the clinical education program, just to name a few,) then don't miss this opportunity!

Many students will not be able to attend the entire 1 ½ hour meeting with Mr. Slydell. However, you should feel free to stop by the meeting for an hour, or even a half of an hour, if that's all the time you can spare. What’s important is that students have the chance to voice their thoughts. Hope to see you there. And please let me know if you have any questions.
