I got this email the other day from BarBri:
Thank you for your enrollment in next week’s Texas Procedure and Evidence Workshop. I am writing to make you aware of a change of faculty for the second half of the Criminal Procedure section of the workshop.
When the workshop was recorded in Houston last week, Professor Jack Strickland, the former Chair of the Texas Board of Bar Examiners, experienced a medical emergency and was taken away by ambulance just before the beginning of the third hour of his lecture. Class was dismissed and resumed the next day with the scheduled civil procedure lecture which was delivered by Professor Byron Davis, the Co-Editor of O’Connors Texas Rules.
After Professor Davis finished, Professor Susan Crump, a known expert on Criminal Law and Procedure and member of the faculty of South Texas College of Law, delivered the final two hours of Professor Strickland’s lecture using Professor Strickland’s notes.
As a result, the workshop you attend next week will begin with two hours of lecture by Professor Jack Strickland followed after lunch by two hours of lecture by Professor Susan Crump. During the first hour of his lecture, Professor Strickland’s discusses the format of the exam and delivers his insights into the exam based upon his experience as a bar examiner. Following that discussion Professor Strickland and then Professor Crump review the most frequently tested issues on the criminal portion of the exam. And, of course, on the second day of the workshop, Professor Davis reviews the most frequently tested issues on the civil portion of the exam.
Here was my initial thought:
Since I am the intended third party beneficiary of the contract between Strickland and BarBri...
After stopping at that point, I asked myself, if the first event in Houston was so bad, why are they showing still replaying the video of it?
