Interesting take on why law schools exist.
My dad forwarded this essay to me this morning.  I'm not sure that I agree wholeheartedly, because the essay disregards how much one can learn from a truly great lawyer.  (Just ask my hubby how much he learned from Chuck Kettlewell ; or ask me how much I le...

The Dave Goldbergs of the world may be rare, but they're out there.
Everything I've read about Dave Goldberg, including this New York Times obituary, indicates that he was an extraordinary person, and my heart goes out to his family.  Equal relationships should be the norm, but I hear that they're not.  The marriages and pa...
