No, that's not what I think, but some of my fellow law professors do feel that way, a fact I learned from a wonderful book by Brian Z. Tamanaha called "Failing Law Schools," that I'm about half way through.
I'll post more about the salary issue later, but on this lazy day (I'm at the beach with my wife, on a well-deserved but brief vacation after serving as an expert witness in the Monsanto v. DuPont case just tried in St. Louis (I was an expert retained by DuPont)), I wanted to just ask a question that underlies some strong opinions I have on that I'll leave aside for now, but the question is this:
Do law professors' writings ever help you in your practice? How often if ever to they really give you help, or give you information that you cite in a brief? (I'd like to focus on law reviews, etc., but blogs matter too, but if you mean a blog rather than an article, please say so. I'm curious.
