This one hits the nail right on the head: "Anyone Can “Think Like a Lawyer”: How the Lawyers’ Monopoly on Legal Understanding Undermines Democracy and the Rule of Law in the United States"

The phrase "thinking like a lawyer" should be banned in law school. Thinking is thinking, whether applied to hard science, business, medicine or law.

The important thing to remember is that the legal profession was, is, and always will be static and immune to structural changes in practice, efficiency, headcount, or wages. Otherwise my paper makes no sense.
