A No Laptop Policy

Eugene Volkh explains in his blog about his no laptop experiment – http://volokh.com/posts/1219262733.shtml#417668

Here’s his rule:

(1) no laptops in class

(2) one student per day will take notes [on a laptop,] which will then be circulated to the entire class.

Even more interesting is this comment:

This is what I love about blogs. 138 comments on a subject that no one who isn’t in Prof. Volokh’s class should care about at all. What a country!


Today’s Law School Innovations blog also has a post on Volkh’s experiment – http://lsi.typepad.com/lsi/2008/08/experimenting-w.html with a great comment from Prof. Michael L. Perlin of New York Law School:

The world has changed. We need to accept that and move on.
