I am old enough to give my younger colleagues (and a few of my contemporaries) some advice. Study the 1920's. They were a law teachers' decade. Even you, honestly sophisticated as you are, can find out how the profession got to where it is. No one of us can afford to stop growing. The profession needs you as lawyers because the profession is under siege. The university schools need you as lawyers because the schools just could forfeit their power in the profession.
