Is an adverse ruling considered a "B" in real world courts?

This.

By giving poor students Cs, it prepares then for the real world, where they will usually be on the losing side.

At least in litigation, it's not just a matter of how good you are, but also about how bad the other side is. That's why the forced curve is a good thing: it separates the good from the great, or the bad from the worst.


so, Cs are appropriate for proles but the bourgeoisie deserves that A

If you mean that C students will be forced to toil away in factories, or other physical labor, while A students get to be biglaw partners with lots of investable assets, then, yeah
