Right On!

This blog post by Amber Taylor is the most sensible thing you can find out there on law schools and their curricula.

I may be one of those lawyers who ceased actively practicing law after nine years to write full-time. But what the legal profession needs is law schools that teach students to be lawyers in classes that teach substantive areas of the law, and practical skills — not phony-baloney courses on Law and Whatever.

Even those of us who no longer practice law are far better off because we took classes in bankruptcy law, insurance law, the UCC, tax, etc., than we would have been taking courses like Law and Journalism.

Even more importantly, what every other profession and industry in the world needs is lawyers representing them who were taught to be lawyers.
