Law School on the record

OTR: First day of Crimlaw

Prepare for the muddle…
Prof R: “There’s no restatement for Criminal Law. Someone once said that criminal hasn’t been stated well enough to be restated. I recommend a horn book…”
Jack the thief:
Prof R: “So you think if society didn’t punish burglary, we would all go out and commit burglaries?”
Jack: “I dunno... I would!”

    Quotes from Prof Crim Law today:
    “I am lost in the morass of your thoughts…”
    (talking about common law definition of rape) – “No, there’s not a provision for accidental rape; he can’t claim he fell into her…well, you all know where he’d fall into.”
