Quote of the day: On lawyers

"Justifications for the bar examination are invariably predicated
on paternalistic assumptions about the ability of ordinary people
to choose qualified lawyers; such arguments ignore the number
of ordinary people who, today, cannot afford qualified lawyers
at all under the current anticompetitive system."
- Alan Mendenhall, ‘The Lawyers Guild
