Baylor Law Dean Closes Law Library for Son's Prom Dinner, Disrupting Students Preparing for Finals

Our sister Brian Leiter's Law School Reports flags this interesting story:  Baylor Law Dean Closes Law Library for Son's Prom Dinner, Disrupting Students Preparing for Finals.  See the full story here from the Waco Tribune:

The dean of Baylor Law School said he was wrong to let his son use part of the school’s library for a high school prom dinner Saturday evening as law students prepared for finals. Some law students were upset Saturday when they learned that the library would not be available to them between 4 and 8 p.m., as Dean Brad Toben’s son and about 40 classmates were using a portion of the library for the dinner. Final exams for the spring quarter began Saturday and run through Friday.

This is a clear abuse of office. It is quite enlightening as to the true character of this dean.

Good to see that things are as backwards as always at Baylor. This guy won't last -- the school could hardly make a class two years ago. New buildings help, but 17th Century priorities won't cut it, even for people willing to spend three years living in Texas' Armpit, aka Waco.
