More Professors Ban Laptops in Law Classes

Here's something controversial (at least for law students). Some Penn State law school professors have banned laptops in their classrooms, claiming that students are too distracted as they surf the web, and in some cases, play poker during class. What do you think?

Myself, I found my laptop a very useful tool during law school, as I detested taking notes by hand. However, I also found it very distracting and rude when classmates would be surfing The Gap and SI.com or, worst of all, playing solitaire incessently.

Laptops are supposed to be a resource to help you in class, not a mode of distraction. If you are finding class so boring, go home, read your textbook. You'll get a lot more out of it.
