Erie Goes Musical

An NYU 1L class put on a musical tribute to one of the many banes of civil procedure, the Erie Doctrine:

The performance took place in the classroom of professor Arthur Miller.  Yes, that Arthur Miller.  Wait, no, that THAT Athur Miller, but the Arthur Miller who served (partly) as inspiration for Rudolph Perini in Scott Turow’s 1L.

At least it looks like NYU is allowing students to get a jump start on their alternative careers.  Good luck with that.

    couldn’t watch. How many of these people in this class will be staring at a loan summary of $200K in a few years looking back on singing about the erie doctrine?

    How much have law schools gone downhill that this took place in the classroom of someone known as one of the biggest hardasses in academia?

    This was so painful to watch. I have no words.

    Sheesh. I always assume law students do not have talent, now I know it.

    There was one attractive woman, brown hair, there sitting in audience. The others == not so attractive.

    Hi BL1Y,

    Perhaps you didn’t know that this is actually a yearly tradition for the hardass, who used to dress in costume and act out the Erie doctrine himself. A couple decades ago, his students started doing it instead. You should verify your information before giving your valuable opinion. This may also help you in your career.

    The conclusion remains no matter who is putting on this travesty.

    I’m glad I had Issacharoff instead.

    With my debt and day-to-day anxiety and depression, this is really incredibly painful to watch. I couldn’t finish.

    But look at all the laptop computers!

    A few people had them when I was in Law school so many years ago.

    I feel like Rip Van Winkle. Have I been away that long?

    the saddest group of comments i’ve ever seen. so in debt and depressed you can’t even watch others having fun?


  11. jdpainterguy Says:

    You’ll see future lawyer.

    You’ll see….

    I ‘ve never seem a captive audience more captive than that one by the way.

    And yet you assume that every last captive is having fun?

    We had to watch a video of Palsgraf vs. LIRR set to The Morning After. Didn’t cost me much, but apparently still memorable 20+ years later. I see nothing has changed.

  13. bl1y Says:

    We spent an hour or so in my lawyering class breaking in to small groups and acting out Palsgraf. Complete waste of time. I learned Palsgraf in undergrad, and law school didn’t add anything to that understanding.

    Winter time got me thinking, I see a ton of half ton trucks with beds mounded over with firewood all the Every truck my familys ever owned has had it done every So i got to wondering what that weighed, according to this site an average truck can fit a half cord of wood, I drive a long bed and most farm trucks I see are long beds if they have a bed , I know you can fit every bit of a half cord in one with some decent stacking you can fit a little According that that site a cord of wood weights around 4000 pounds, so our half cord of wood in question is 2000 pound, thats seasoned weight though, it’s not weve never hauled unseasoned which according to this site is coming in at 2800 pounds for a half for white I’m not playing who makes the better truck here, weve loaded a 94 dodge to the brim like this, 88 ford, had a newer chevy stacked high, it was a shortbed but it had a 16 foot trailer of wood behind But the fact was these were all half ton trucks and none have given us Anyone have any input on this? I guess it’s important to mention I dont go screaming down the interstate like this, a few miles on a gravel road, a rural highway, some offroad which I would think would be the hardest on
