If only there were a law school that taught advocacy skills...

News from California, where this guy thinks it's a great idea to start a law school in the middle of the freaking desert because apparently there aren't any schools out there that teach litigation skills.

"I've been thinking about this for years," he said. "How come there's not a school where people can go if they want to become trial lawyers? This is a great opportunity."

Of course, there are a number of law schools that market themselves as places where students can study to become top-notch trial attorneys. It's not entirely clear whether Dolan has been living under a rock, or whether he just thinks those law schools aren't any good at what they teach. In any event, as I like to say, good luck with all that...

I can't think of a better law school for a future trial lawyer.

Don't worry Tom, I didn't forget. Click on the word "places" and you'll see my link to Tech.

Finally, a law school that teaches advocacy skills. Following this trend, I am going to open a fast food restaurant that sells hamburgers and a gas station that sells gas. All of these novel ideas should be successful.
