This letter, dated January 1, 2011, begins, like Law and Order, with stories "ripped from the headlines"; i.e., law school grads having difficulty finding jobs, the financial difficulties being faced by academia and the bailout craze. The underlying theme, however, is the violation of the fundamental values of the legal profession by the traditional law schools. The author believes that the failure of law schools to teach law students how to practice law and their enthusiasm in "funneling" their graduates into large law firms is motivated by self-interest - loan repayment and alumni/ae contributions. What is worse is that this defective "educational" approach is a primary cause of lawyer dissatisfaction and the inability of the public to be able to have access to lawyers and, hence, the legal system for problems crying out for immediate attention.
