Chuck, I didn't get 'booted.' The reality was they wanted me to go from teaching a credit course (which I had been teaching for 8 years)to a non-credit course so as not to interfere with tenured professors classes by doing a student drain (credit envy) and forcing tenured classes to be canceled for lack of students. I was disinclined to go to non-credit status and told them so. However, there is very little regard given to anything practical. That is undisputed.

With all due respect, maybe it was a choice on your part, but it was a choice given and designed to suit its purpose. Your objection is with my word, booted. Very well, but it is a little like telling someone they can continue to work for the company but you are not going to pay them. It is not right, and in this case it is indicative of the legal education in this country. The term booted was designed to describe the law schools tactics contrary to the basic good of the law students and not your abilities. I think I made that clear in my article.
