Over the last 21 years, I’ve heard this quite a bit. Usually it happens after the first lecture I give, whether it’s in a law school class setting or a 1-on-1 tutoring setting.
I’ve taught Critical Studies I, II, and III classes at Hastings for many years now (and 1L’s for 21 years at Hastings), as well as multiple seminars at Cal Northern School of Law, Golden Gate, UC Davis, University of San Francisco, and Santa Clara over the last 21 years. I’ve also tutored law school students during that time. And the refrain keeps coming again and again and again:
Where were you when I started law school? Where were you after my first semester? After my 1L year?
