Law School - A Waste of Time (And Anti-Competitive)?

Maybe it's just the malaise of being a 3L, but this piece arguing just that struck quite a chord with me.

I've argued since law school began that the actual schooling portion should be about half the time, with some kind of apprenticeship/"residency" requirement at an approved training firm (some sufficient breadth of practice area, and training for the partners in the firm). And the monopolistic self-appointed ABA gatekeeping has always troubled me. But the investment in the status quo by the academics-in-chief has always left me with the conclusion that things aren't going to change any time soon.

But who knows? Maybe this report is the start of something new...
