Law School buys Google ads to boost undergrad legal studies enrollment

While Google’s targeting algorithm knows enough from mining my gmail account and web searches to correctly deduce the importance of “Security v. Privacy” to my everyday drama, they apparently don’t know I completed my B.S. degree a while back. I wonder what the law school is paying per click-through:

Not a bad idea though. The law school’s undergrad credit hours are rebounding from Dean Moffitt’s ill-considered sports conflict program:

Maybe History, traditionally a popular major for pre-law students, should try it too:

    As was true of their winter slate, the projected spring offerings are nearly all taught by adjuncts–in spite of the promo language (“Now you can take law courses from the same world-class professors that teach graduate law students.”) And they’ll looking to attract about 450 students per term.

      Given the bait and switch, couldn’t the UG law students sue? Would they get extra credit?

        Also, they’re all experimental course numbers (true also in Winter). That’s one way around the pesky curriculum cmte!

          It’s been a while so maybe the rules have changed. But at least a few years ago when this came up in my unit I was under the impression that experimental course numbers (399s and 410s) had to have a TTF instructor, and that you could only offer them so many times before you had to put them before the curriculum committee.

    What’s with the “Science vs. Religion” program? Isn’t that flogging a dead horse?
