Wow.  Just wow.

There's proof that stupid people pass the bar too.

Heh - I have a friend who does Biglaw in Atlanta.  He tells me that when they have new associates who are worried about passing the bar, he tells them to go get a phone book, turn it over, and look at the ad for the PI lawyer on the back cover (this will work for pretty much any phone book).  Then he says to them, "Look, if that guy can pass the bar, so can you."  :)

By the way, this story joins a fun group of true new/summer associate legends that you'll be hearing about.  A first year prof passed around articles about the other two.
There's the "sushi memo" and the "busy doing jack sh-t" e-mail.  So be careful about your correspondence with lawyers, lest you become a legend.

Lesser known, but amazingly juicy, is the summer associate who jumped in the Hudson River during a firm party in NYC last summer.  That one's true, too.

Honestly, I think I've encountered as many stupid lawyers as smart ones.

LSAT - 161

In - Suffolk, New England School of Law
Out - BC, Northeastern
