Tlf it to me

So, it's TLF fundraising week everybody, which this blog fully supports. Help your fellow students out, and all that sutff.

But one wonders, why have the professors agree to bribe us into pledging with such mundane things? Pizza, ice cream, beer....I can buy all of those things for myself. I'd rather watch the professor's experience some good old fashioned humiliation. Everyone in the class gets to throw a pie in a professor's face? Now we're talking. Perhaps the professors have to mud wrestle each other. Or better yet, force the professors to go to each other's classes, then have them critique each other a la American Idol. Now THAT would be a thing I would pay to see.

Perhaps that's just week before spring break tension, though.

TLF is to raise money for law students taking non-paid public interests work, right?

If so, we have that too... and its also this week. We have profs who have mountain homes and interests in racehorses, so we get some truly unique offerrings. But yeah, mostly offers to take students out for pizza and beer. We do have a few offers of abject humiliation -- singing telegrams and the like -- which people buy but apparently never redeem. Anyway, all for the cause, right?

Yep, that's exactly what TLF is. Short for "Texas Law Fellowships".

I thought TLF stood for "shaking down students with $100k in loans because the law school won't commit sufficient funds or fund-raising for this". No?

So, 8:28, you're suggestion is that we each have $103K in loans so that TLF can avoid having it's pledge drive?

You're in favor of direct subsidies instead of a tax credit?
