FAMU Law 'traumatic and disheartening'



Former FAMU law Professor Dale Rubin has started a blog, and his first post does not put FAMU in a good light. "I have never had a more traumatic and disheartening experience," he writes, referring to his time as a visiting professor at FAMU in 2004-2005. He cites late paychecks, phantom employees and "whimsical decrees by top administration officials."

Rubin's post may be significant because it goes public with complaints other FAMU professors have been making privately for years. Rubin attended Stanford University as an undergrad and got his law degree from Berkeley. He now teaches at Appalachian School of Law in Virginia, where his faculty bio does not mention FAMU.
