Law School and Laptops

Apparently laptops help law students, according to this study. At this point, almost everybody seems to have one. The study's conclusion might be a bit flawed: perhaps there is a relationship between going through the trouble of getting a laptop and bringing it to class and how seriously you take law school. Still, this is an interesting study.

If you are a student of mine and you think I don't know that many of you are texting your friends and surfing the Internet while pretending to type away, you would be wrong. Sometimes, I roam around when I'm teaching and there are always a few students shuffling around with the "you walked in on me while I was looking at porn" expression on their faces when I get an angle on their computers.
