I've never seen anything this extreme. I've seen the requirement of "original admissibility", but not prejudice against in-state school transfers.
... in fact, if you look in the yellow pages you will find a bunch of crappy lawyers who passed the bar.
Since a majority of them come from ABA approved schools, we agree that ABA certification doesn't really act as an effective screening device for the ultimate quality of the lawyer?
I do agree that for whether logical or not, the school name will carry weight. Ultimate, you hope that competence will win the day, even if it is an up hill fight.
Agreed. I would argue, however, that the percentage of crappy lawyers graduated from a particular institution increases as you slide down the scale of selectivity in admissions. So I wouldn't say that the generalizations one draws from the school's name is totally illogical on the whole. Although, as with any stereotype, a given species from within the genus might defy the presumption.
one of my friends at school cuts the sleeves off all his shirts. is that what the 2d. amendment is talking about?
sorry i had to do it.
