Any lawyer knows that you don’t learn how to be a lawyer in law school. Law school teaches you to read cases, write scholarly articles and answer hypothetical questions in front of 50 of your classmates after a night of “bar review.”

Sure, some of those skills are handy in the real world. But other things are just too practical and common sense for our institutions of higher learning to waste time teaching aspiring attorneys. (Maybe the fact that most law professors never really practiced law has something to do with that, but I digress).
