Except that there's rules in place by both the schools and the ABA, and you have to follow them. Law school isn't only about learning the law. It's also about training you how to act like a professional. And that means following the rules -- even if they're pointless and they don't make practical sense. It's not a new revelation that 90% of class time is wasted time, whether it be law school or any other school. That doesn't mean you can blow off responsibility if it's explicitly been expected of you.
