"What They Don’t Teach Law Students: Lawyering"
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/20/busin ... wanted=all
"But the three people taking notes are not students. They are associates at a law firm called Drinker Biddle & Reath, hired to handle corporate transactions. And they have each spent three years and as much as $150,000 for a legal degree."
"One 2010 study of hiring at top-tier law schools since 2000 found that the median amount of practical experience was one year, and that nearly half of faculty members had never practiced law for a single day. If medical schools took the same approach, they’d be filled with professors who had never set foot in a hospital."
I know many of these issues are discussed on TLS, but seeing it all in one article along with the stats cited was interesting.
