Thanks for the information.

Unworthy Conversant

Yes, thank you for these thoughts. For reasons I can't really identify, they make me feel slightly more optimistic about my overall chances of ever being hired as a law teacher; now I feel that my chances are "astronomically small" instead of "impossible."

And I have to say that, as someone who attended (and loved) a second-tier school, I found that excellence in teaching was a required metric in their hiring, as bad teachers were not usually retained, and good teachers were highly valued. That isn't to say that there wasn't still a diversity of educational methods employed, nor am I saying that there were no bad teachers there; but bad teachers were a definite minority, and the school was small enough to allow building-wide reputations to develop that effectively steered people away from the bad teachers and toward the good teachers.
