"Most come to law school because they are already inclined to listen to multiple sides...." Really? So, what happened to Jeff Sessions, John Ascroft, Alberto Gonzalez and the multitudes of carnival barkers on afternoon tv soliciting for injury cases? So, all those Hammers, Heavy Hitters, Super Leading Lawyers went to law school to relish a good argument like Plato? Ok.


Gerken is committing a hasty generalization fallacy in generalizing from a small, self-selected sample of Yale Law Students.

Not sure this is so much praise for law school as it is condemnation of undergraduate institutions. Being able to understand and articulate the arguments of the other side ought to be taught at the freshman level. Is law school really becoming Remedial College Writing?
