Have a Great School Year!

Are Lawyers Getting Dumberer?

The Future of Law?

According to data collected by some professor at Pepperdine Law, yes. Lesserer and lesserer of us who scored over 160 on the LSAT (law school admission test) are applying to go to law school. Meanwhile, morer and morer lower scoring folks are applying and being admitted. Even top schools’ LSAT stats are dropping.

Some think it might not be such a bad thing for smart people to do something besides law.

An attorney, cross-examining the local coroner, queried, “Before you signed the death certificate had you taken the man’s pulse?”
“No,” the coroner replied.
“Well, then, did you listen for a heart beat?”
The coroner answered, “No.”
“Did you check for respiration? Breathing?”, asked the attorney.
Again the coroner replied, “No.”
“Ah,” the attorney said, “So when you signed the death certificate you had not taken any steps to make sure the man was dead, had you?”
The coroner rolled his eyes, and shot back “Counselor, at the time I signed the death certificate the man’s brain was sitting in a jar on my desk. But I can see your point. For all I know he could be out there practicing law somewhere.”
