Every year, the ABA promotes Law Day as a day to learn about The Courts! Justice! Freedom! I don’t mean to poke fun; this is important. But the suggested lesson plans focus on a tiny slice of law — courtroom litigation — and don’t really portray that slice accurately. Instead, I think students and teachers ought to read Jordan Rushie’s A Day in the Life of a Young Lawyer, which is a much more accurate view of courtroom practice, and modify the ABA lesson plans accordingly.
