Yesterday, we reported on a meeting at Cardozo Law School between the law school administration, student leaders, and MTV producers regarding the possible filming of a reality TV show at the school. It would focus on the “true life” of New York law school students.
We polled our readers. Almost 60% of the 2,000 who voted said a reality TV show at Cardozo would be a bad idea.
The folks at Cardozo agree. Tipsters report that word spread on campus and that most students were strongly opposed. Today, the dean of the law school sent out an email telling students not to worry.
From Cardozo dean Matthew Diller:
I know that there are rumors circulating about Cardozo’s possible participation in a reality TV show. Before the rumor mill takes over, I thought I would set the record straight. Cardozo was approached by producers considering a reality television project based at a law school. A group of administrators, faculty and students met with the producers to hear their proposal yesterday. The consensus of those who met with the producers was that Cardozo should not participate in such a project and, as far as I am concerned, that is really the end of the matter. Publicity given to the fact of the meeting has apparently led to rumors that far exceed the “reality” of the situation. I hope this lays to rest any concerns about the subject.

No word as to the truth of the rumor that Cardozo objected on the grounds that MTV might order unkosher food for their filming crew.[FN1]
[FN1] Cardozo students seem awfully sensitive (See reaction to our humorous poll answer, “What is a cardozo?”). We would just like to clarify that this is a joke.
