This course is centered in the experience of classroom dialog. Everything we read and write will be intended to help us understand better what we learn from listening to one another. I say "listening," because in a conversation with so many voices, we're all going to be listening much more than we are talking. So this is an extended exercise in active listening.

The LawContempSoc site is a collaborative class space built on Twiki [twiki.org], a free software wiki system. If this is your first time using a wiki for a long term project, or first time using a wiki at all, you might want to take a minute and look around this site.

I hope everyone has had an interesting and valuable summer. People are welcome to continue revising work. Some additional modifications of grades will be posted shortly in view of recent revisions.

The employment situation has been much misdescribed. How you, and your teachers, should be adapting the learning programs you are following is an important question that has so far received little or no attention. I am going to hold a reunion session on this topic, primarily for you but also open to any other interested students, entitled What Now?, on Wednesday September 16, at 6pm, in room 107.

As of July 1, many people are still writing or revising third papers. Unfortunately, the system is applying pressure for the release of grades. These grades, as I have mentioned before, are actually just meat grades: you are supposed to be labeled "choice" or "prime," right now. Aside from all the usual stupidities with grades (see EvaluationPolicy), putting a meat-quality stamp on you is not only undignified this year, it's absurd, because the carnivores in the system are at present toothless. Although the law school is insisting on going ahead with the disgusting theater of humiliation that is the Early Interview Program (and which I again remind you that none of you should attend as a mere mental health matter), the parties who usually benefit from their swaggering and preening opportunities are functionally if not financially bankrupt: they will have no real jobs to offer in the end, in return for their condescension and unwarrantable interference in the education you are trying to get.

So the current attempt to work the usual substitution of meat grades for real mentoring is particularly threadbare. But just because the world is different doesn't mean law school will change. As you will have seen, I am actively editing papers and providing comments. Now I will stop doing useful work in order to guess what your meat grade ought to be. Thursday, 2 July, I will submit provisional grades.

These grades can and will change. My own editorial process will probably make some modifications in ranking necessary: at the margins, that may change a grade. Revisions you are doing on your own work will undoubtedly produce changes in some cases to the "effort, commitment, improvement" ratings of your work overall. So provisional grades are, well, provisional.

In order to prevent the psychic distress of having a provisional grade lowered, the grades initially submitted will be conservative, leaving room for adjustment during either my editorial process or yours.

Our wiki embodies the principle of continuous revision, as our course does. I will be finished commenting on all present work by the end of next week, and the provisional grades will be updated when I am done. Students who continue to revise their work will receive updated evaluations, which may also necessitate grade changes.

Meat grades had apparent importance in relation to an employment system that was bad for young lawyers. That system is now suffering the initial infarction that will over the next five years lead to a well-deserved death. Please don't spend too much time over the next weeks worrying about your meat grades. Your job is getting an education that will prepare you to succeed in the new professional organization of law practice, where expertise is sold instead of time. What you need is mentoring, not meat grading. Take no substitute and keep your eyes on the prize, which is freedom.

Be well. See you soon.

Note: Please be aware of what "Parent" topic you select when creating or editing a page. The topic parent is what the Index uses to organize pages. I have moved most pages to the new PersonalIntros page or the top level LawContempSoc parent where relevant. Topic parents are easy to change: there is a box for them below the text area in every page's edit view. Using them correctly makes it much easier for people to find what they're looking for by scanning the index rather than using the search box.

For other hints on optimal use of the wiki, see GoodStyle.
