Ken has a great post at Popehat.com about why learning the “minutiae” of lawyering is important for law students, and why insisting that legal education focus on the “common good” is shortsighted. Read his post, but his point is that if you want to make a difference for your clients, you have to have a firm grasp of the nuts and bolts of lawyering. Lawyering is about serving you, the client, not the “common good.”
The contents of this blog, this web site, and any writings by me that are linked here, are all my personal commentary. None of it is intended to be legal advice for your situation.
