AbstractThis note suggests (again) that some of the goals of legal education can be discovered helpfully by observing excellent "lawyers" (in their diverse occupations) anecdotally and/or systematically. It repeats the challenging question - what are the causes of a person becoming an excellent lawyer? There is nearly a century of criticism of formal university legal education for allegedly failing to contribute "enough" towards the production of a sufficient number of "excellent" or even "competent" "lawyers" (in the diversity of careers which "lawyers" enter). How should we respond?
