If Columbia law professors don't want students going online during class, then perhaps they should reform their curriculum such that it better relates to our lives. If that task is too difficult for them, they are always free to find another occupation and stop cashing the checks.

To restrict access to your paper simply delete the "#" character on the next two lines:
