  4. Hi, hello, I’m in sixth grade nearing seventh and am doing anything and everything possible to prepare to be a personal injury lawyer. I know there is still a lot of time until I really need to make the decisions of bigger things but I’ve been looking through the internet for things to help prepare and haven’t found much. Do you have any like, beginners law books? Or anything of the sort you would recommend?

  5. How about giving law professors some vocational training before teaching? Law isn't easy but it also isn't more difficult than other subjects. While professors from other disciplines are able to set exam questions in (relatively) more precise terms, law professors, despite their supposedly better language ability, almost always phrase their questions in vague terms (I know, these are the forks in the road they intentionally set…) Worse still, some professors like asking questions such as "X once said blahblahbalh" and then just state "Discuss." (and then in the exam reports, they blame students for not being able to directly answer the questions!) Again, law is not easy but neither are other subjects. When a client walks into a solicitors firm, s/he is not asking for a painstaking legal analysis from "ratio" of common law judges since, say, 300 years ago, all they need are just proper options. There are much better ways to test law students' legal concepts such as MCQs. Even subjects which require the highest intellectual ability such as Maths and Physics can test concepts by MCQs, why can't law do the same?

  6. WHY IS LAW SOLD AS A COMODITY? WHY NOT JUST TEACH EVERY CITIZEN THE LAW FROM THE TIME THEY ARE CHILDREN? WHY IS LAW WITHHELD FROM PEOPLE UNLESS YOU PAY TO GO TO LAW SCHOOL? THESE BOOKS SHOULD BE RECOMMENDED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC SO THAT THEY CAN EDUCATE THEMSELVES ABOUT THE LAWS THAT EFFECT THEIR DAILY LIVES. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE TAUGHT THAT THEY NEED A LAWYER, BUT RATHER PEOPLE SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO ACQUIRE LEGAL KNOWLEDGE. WHY KEEP THE WORLD DUMB?? HIRING A LAWYER MEANS YOU ARE NOT COMPETENT TO REPRESENT YOURSELF. BUT IF YOU LEARN YOU CAN REPRESENT YOURSELF IN COURT.
