I agree with that advice, but he didn't actually say that though. But my question was basically where do you draw the line at trying to balance theory and practical education. Baylor obviously has better practical training, which utlaw007 seemed so keen on, but it lacks a fully theoretical curriculum (although I think utlaw overlooks the fact that Baylor does in fact have theoretical classes). I still refuse to believe having a theoretical approach outweighs a practice oriented education, when the student wants to gain experience so that they can actually practice in a courtroom immediately after graduation. But what do I know? I'm just a law student. I bow to the superior intellect of the solo with 5 full trials under his belt
See me when when you graduate. And let's see just how good you are in the courtroom. You are dense, dude. Refuse to believe it if you want. Let's see, how much money have you made as a trial lawyer? Trying family law cases or automobile accidents is just as hard as suing major manufacturers in complex products liability cases or cases with similar difficulty like patent infringement and employment discrimination. Yeah, that makes complete sense.
Have you ever had an bio mechanical engineer expert turn your case down because there is no merit, but when you explain the complex theory of your case he changes his mind and says, "you are a great trial lawyer!" Has that happened to you?
Have you ever talked to an expert bio mechanical engineer at one of the most reputable bio mechanical engineering firms in Texas and have proceeded to poke holes in his take on the incident that he acknowledged were there? And the holes I poked involved the ACTUAL SCIENCE.
So my 5 trials is an indicator of my skills. I guess that's why I won the very first trial I was in against a lawyer with 30 years of litigation experience. I won that trial because I'm a noob. Makes sense. Like I said, you're dense.
As I said before, if you aren't a trial lawyer, I'm going to ignore any point of contention you have with what I said. I've given more time than I should to people who know nothing about trial law. If you are a trial lawyer and disagree, than we'll talk. Just know that many of the things I say have been reinforced by lawyers with 20+ years trial experience. They have TONS of cases under their belt. So I guess they are noobs, too.
So if anyone says something completely ignorant from here on out, they will be ignored by me. You are a hater, dude. Keep hatin for all I care.
