First Kill All the Lawyers!
Maybe Shakespeare was right, "first kill all the lawyers" but unfortunately that is not an option. In Schools for Misrule: Legal Academia and An Overlawyered America by Walter Olson, the author makes the case how our society has systematically gotten more litigious for the wrong reasons. Stemming from the future lawyers, law students, learn in the institutionalized law schools. This has led to a systematic system of mistrust. Multi track, this book examines a broad view of the law on our society. Starting off that many of our leaders, like President Obama are lawyers. Olson goes into examples of legends of frivolous law suits that have placed a strain on our system. He also ventures into universal jurisdiction that blurs national boundaries and cause havoc to sovereignty. This book also examines the united consequences of policies that attempt to fix one program but end up creating others. Over all Schools for Misrule: Legal Academia and An Overlawyered America by Walter Olson is an insightful analysis into our modern legal system for anyone wondering out loud "How the heck did we get here?"
