I am not sure why Roberts thinks that academics should have to usually cater to the interests of practicing attorneys. Law programs do not claim to be vocational schools.
They're professional schools. They train you to practice in a profession, so in that respect, they are vocational schools. They just happen to be staffed by academics (who do not train students to be academics).
