    John O. McGinnis in City Journal bases his piece on a faulty premise, “Law is, in effect, an information technology—a code that regulates social life.”

    A Lawyer uses the information to advocate for his client and to persuade another party or a Judge of his client’s just cause. Technology has changed the nature of the legal profession by freeing up the lawyer to do what he or she does best —advocate!

    As long as humans disagree and do dumb things, there will be business for Lawyers. Its better than being an Undertaker; we get repeat business!

      The next time you land in jail, call a comedian,

      You have Lawyer jokes, we have client jokes. Ours are funnier and they are all true.

        Got any more, Arkey? Please post them.

      More! More!

        We can’t tell client jokes. The straight-laced Board of Professional Responsibility won’t let us.

          You don’t have to use names! Geez Louise!

    Law school out, nursing school in?

    • Corlyss

      Nope, because both fields are dominated by women now. STEM is the way to go.
