But lately my students have been turning in legal briefs laced with derision and ad hominem barbs. For this trend, I largely blame Scalia. My students read his work, find it amusing and imitate his truculent style.And you say law professors don't teach practice skills - he's got his Young Pioneers writing full legal briefs with opportunities for truculence!
After admitting that he finds some of Scalia's art "delightfully funny,"  Chemerinsky points out the peril facing the legal profession:
But Scalia's browbeating is childish, even vain; like a harshly negative book critic, he revels in his own turns of phrase. And his attitude, just like his legal theory, affects the profession as a whole.My Legal Profession Cocktail Parties(fake trademark symbol) will never be the same. The last thing we need is more peevish, callous scoffers. Bad, Scalia, bad!
If legal professionals ignore Scalia's meanness or — worse — pass around his insults at cocktail parties like Wildean witticisms, they'll encourage a new generation of peevish, callous scoffers.
We find a much better example for lawyerly conduct in Dean Chemerinsky, who, as a successful academic in his mid-50s, decided to take on the founding deanship at a totally frivolous, but absolutely needed (social justice!), law school that charges over $40,000 for in-state tuition to a second-tier public school while he and his wife take home hundreds of thousands in federally-backed loot from suckers.
After all, actions speak louder than words. Future lawyers, instead of being peevish, callous scoffers, be full-throttle wealth-transfering exploiters.
 Absolutely true - nothing molests my fancy until I projectile vomit like a legendary Scalia opinion. But I think Dean Chemerinsky can do better than "delightfully funny." How about "taint-ticklingly ribald, as-if Clarence Darrow, Archie Bunker, and Jim Gaffigan trysted menege-a-trois, Providence granted them an indulgence for the anathema, and from the befouled linens germinated Scalia's mordant wit."
