  1. Lady, I respect your traditions but you certainly haven't elevated your line of thinking or truly challenged your beliefs through law school, which is what it is meant to do. You simply filtered law schools elaborate and intended contradictory lessons to bend to your very narrow minded way of thinking. You may have graduated law school, but you certainly missed the point: Think for yourself.

  2. Clickbait title aside… For someone who (rightfully) credits law school for its ability to nurture critical thinking, she commits quite a few fallacies here. She also rambles a bit from her central narrative structure in her speech. She needs to calm down, breathe, and be less emotional in her delivery. A good way to look foolish in law school is to be overly emotional; it stymies detached critical thinking and speech.
