While Dean of the Harvard Law School Kagan did not require students to study the U.S. Constitution at all.

May we have a show of hands of all Harvard Law grads who believe this ?

Anyone , anyone ?

How about any lawyer from any American law school ?

Anyone , anyone ?

Mike Klarman, Noah Feldman ,Larry Tribe , Mark Tushnet , You all put your hands down , we know you are going to fib because you teach Con Law at Harvard , we know you have no students .

And what is up with Brian Leiter, a very informed law professor at the University of Texas. He ranks the best law schools in constitutional law as follows:

1. Yale University 4.8 2. Harvard University 4.6 3. University of Chicago 4.5 University of Texas, Austin 4.5 5. Georgetown University 4.4 New York University 4.4 Stanford University 4.4 8. Columbia University 4.3 University of California, Berkeley 4.3 10. University of Virginia 4.0 11. Northwestern University 3.9 University of California, Los Angeles 3.9 University of Michigan, Ann Arbor 3.9 14. Duke University 3.8 University of Southern California 3.8

Who would believe him ? What kind of Texan would leave Mineral Wells School of Law , Drive though Laundry and Barbecue take home off the list ?

This is not a well-known law school, but apparently Drake has a distinguished Con Law program:

Very nice attempt at hiding the truth by highlighting a non-issue. The issue is NOT how other lawyers rate Harvard lawyers. Nor is it about the quality of their courses in Constitutional law.

Having ELECTIVE courses in Constitutional law is a FAR CRY from having REQUIRED courses in the subject. But then, you know this.

The other thing that you know is that it doesn't matter what ANY lawyer from Harvard or anywhere else believes about this, especially if they graduated prior to 2006, the year that Kagan implemented the change in the curriculum.

Anyone who graduated prior to that would not necessarily know a thing about it.

So, your point is bogus.
