The hottest news this week is the case of the NUS Law lecturer being charged with six counts of corruptly obtaining gratification from a former student. "Corruptly obtaining gratification" is such a dainty phrase for "Asking for sex for a good grade".
I corruptly obtain gratification every day too, by playing games during office hours but I don't think it's the same thing.
The lecturer also allegedly received a Mont Blanc pen, an Apple iPod as well as two tailored-made shirts from his former student. She also paid for one of his bills worth $1,278.60.
Wow. I wonder what was going rate in the law faculty for #NusSexforGrades? I bet the requirements were stiff.
I suppose at #NusSexforGrades Law School, you must possess great drive to succeed.
@Shinypants78 quipped: "Heard it's hard to get in. You need good oral skills too!"
@ErvinHan suggested Law School is a place to become a master debater, if not a cunning linguist.
@yitzhakkhoo complained that #NusSexforGrades is an insult on all the ugly lawyers who had to rely on pure hard work. :/
I think we should give credit where it's due, especially since the student may have worked all night on her penal code paper and nailed it.
I wonder, at #NusSexforGrades, do they teach law students that the pen is mightier than the sword?
There may be a new post opening at #NusSexforGrades : Law Lecherer. I heard their Law Faculty is a good place to get ahead.
And they say bloggers are the ones "scandalizing the judiciary".
I just realized that #NusSexforGrades is a letter away from another hashtag altogether.
