Law School--explained

This now well and truly falls into the category of "asked and answered"--however the person who mentioned this subject is particularly clueless since he has missed numerous references to my having attended (and graduated) this school, that said:
The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law (University of Maryland School of Law or Maryland Law) is the second-oldest law school in the United States (Oldest being at The College of William and Mary). The school was founded in 1816 as the Maryland Law Institute and began regular instruction in 1824.

Maryland Law has been ranked in the top tier of American law schools by U.S. News & World Report, maintaining its position in the rankings over the years, currently ranked 39th in the most recent 2013 edition. The 2013 Rankings also gave Maryland top standing in the categories of Clinical Training (#5), Health Care Law (#3), Part-Time Program (#9), Environmental Law (#11) and Trial Advocacy (#8). Additionally, Maryland ranks 22nd in the nation among public law schools. The National Jurist recently named Maryland as a top-10 public interest law school in the nation.

Maryland Law is fully accredited by the American Bar Association, is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, and has a chapter of the Order of the Coif.
Does that answer your question?

I should add that the University of Exeter has an even better academic reputation than Maryland.

Can't forget to add that I've been admitted to the bar for nearly 25 years (will be 25 years in 2015).

So, yes, I can give legal opinions.

  1. Anyone can say she went to some school, or is a member of some state's bar. You are an anonymous guy on the internet, with a particularly tortured view of Constitutional law. I remain convinced you're not an attorney. Prove otherwise.

  2. See, the thing is you don’t comment here using your professional persona, instead you use an internet persona that is rude, swears a lot, and says things that are incorrect about law. Correct me if I am wrong, but I assume you don’t do that with clients or in the courtroom. But you want to play the “I’m a lawyer” card to gain clout, even though you don’t act like one here. Case in point is from a couple of days ago:

    Here you tried to use your lawyer clout but said something blatantly untrue about Stand Your Ground law (that it blocks investigations of the scene). You blow any chance of being taken seriously when you do things like that. Look, if someone says they are doctor and then says tells me that human beings have two hearts, I’m not going to believe them- regardless of where they got their MD from. Why? Because it is easily verifiable false, and also runs contradictory to every other doctor who uses integrity when they speak about medicine.
