I was pleased to read this posting in The Lawyerist, entitled Teaching Makes You a Better Lawyer. This is so true, in my opinion, but it's self-serving when coming from the academy. Coming from the Bar it's most welcome. I think the disdain that so many lawprofs (typically on the left) have for the Bar is often the product of a psychological self-loathing by people who can neither teach nor do.
