Professor Kingsfield

February 05, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

In the novel The Paper Chase by John Osborn one of the most important characters was Professor Kingsfield. The setting was law school and the professor was instrumental in teaching the young students to become good lawyers. The student's feelings were obviously no concern to Kingsfield as he sole focus is on providing the most value as possible as a teacher to his students. His lectures were so well planned and precise that they were able to finish the last page of the reading material during the last minute of class time which meant they never fell behind or got ahead of his planned schedule.

The author Osborn, Jr. paints the character of Professor Kingsfield as the quintessential successful and respected lawyer. He seemed to obtain every necessary characteristic to be successful in field of law. Kingsfield's intelligence, time management, and work ethic were a few examples of the qualities that made quite the impression on Hart and the other Law students.

One night when Hart was walking through campus he bumped into his friend Anderson and said, "Hey, you're looking into Kingsfield's office," Hard said, his mouth rounding in a smile. "You really can see in from back here, can't you."

It made him feel close to Anderson. "I'm not watching him," Anderson said stiffly. "I'm studying him."

"Studying him?" Hart said.

"I want to learn how best to maximize my time, so I use him as a model. It's all related to grade point."

For anyone to be peering into a window in the middle of the night to study a person's actions to help with their own time management gives insight into how brilliant Kingsfield is. This is because the essence of Anderson's actions seems to be the epitome of not usefully spending your time.

The teacher was clearly one of the most efficient people that Hart had ever met. It is important to use these role models as mentors in the future. For these law students the more work they put in during school will help them with their cases in the future.
