Teaching the Rule Against Perpetuities?

Professor Ilya Somin, George Mason University School of Law, is thinking of not teaching the Rule Against Perpetuities: Should We Teach Law Students the Rule Against Perpetuities?

"In legal circles, the RAP is virtually a byword for abstruse complexity,
and is traditionally one of the most hated parts of the law school curriculum.
Forcing law students to learn it is almost a form of hazing, much like making
them learn the Blue Book."
