Lawyers and Caveman Thinking

For such smart people, lawyers seem really prone to cavemanesque thinking. They draw trends from single data points or very few data points. It is ridiculousness.

often they make conclusions without any data points..... I was actually very shocked to see that there are so many smart and religious students at my school (i know not lawyers yet).. Not that makes them dumb..
