What Law Students Want From Law Professors
James B. Levy, As a Last Resort, Ask the Students: What They Say Makes Someone an Effective Law Teacher, 58 Me. L. Rev. 50 (2006):
“[T]he profile of the ideal law school professor from the students’ perspective is someone who is an expert in her field, projects confidence about that expertise, respects students, cares that they learn, and has great enthusiasm for teaching. Somewhat surprisingly, characteristics that we usually presume to be very important to students, such as teacher’s learning students’ names, the ability to entertain students in class, or socializing with them outside of class, were not as important to students as we often believe.”
But what about professor sexiness?
