Finals week might not be the best time to host a holiday party.But professors at the University of Memphis School of Law decided to host their holiday party, complete with a band, in a reading room in the library during finals week, Above The Law reported Wednesday.
The party also reportedly started at 9 a.m. and lasted until 2 p.m., peak studying time for test takers.
And students were not happy.
“The general consensus is anger. Most people I have talked to believe that this party is indicative of the faculty’s total disconnect from reality — they are literally fiddling while Rome is burning around them (at least for the 1Ls),” an irate tipster told ATL. “We are in the middle of exams at a school where grades matter if you want a job. It is unfathomable that nobody on the faculty saw the absurdity of throwing a party with a band in the main reading room of the library during exams. The phrase I have heard over and over is ‘I am at a loss for words.'”
This party seems to be the latest indication law professors have lost touch with reality.
