Fuck 2013. Happy new year, my ass. Hopefully 2014 has a cure for this bitterness. Fuck it all.
Let’s get this straight. Law school is a trade school. With that said, teach me practical shit that I can actually apply in the real working world. I’m tired of this academic bullshit where I should learn the histories and theoretical facts as to how some laws and procedures came to be. Fuck all that, if it’s law, it’s law. I don’t care how it came to be. If you want me to care or think it is that important for me to know, just tell me what it is and do not have me waste my fucking time researching and finding out what that shit is.
If, as a lawyer, I need to be able to go to court and do a suppression hearing to argue how to exclude certain things from coming into trial as evidence, teach me how to do that. Teach me what the rules are that I need to know and follow, what the steps are that I need to take, and what I need in my arguments and how I need to structure them. DO NOT have me waste my time researching how and why a suppression hearing to exclude evidence came to be. All of that is completely useless if I still don’t know how to do a suppression hearing.
If, as a lawyer, I need to be able to write a contract, teach me how to write a contract. DO NOT waste my whole semester by having me read about the different schools of thoughts on what the essence and concept of a contract is or should be. Teach me how to write a contract and how it works, practically.
I am motivated to become a dictator just so I can forcibly change the law school curricula so it can teach practical and useful skills, rather than garbage knowledge that no one, especially employers, care about.
During a robbery, the bank robber shouted to everyone in the bank: “Don’t move. The money belongs to the State. Your life belongs to you.”
Everyone in the bank laid down quietly. This is called “Mind Changing Concept” Changing the conventional way of thinking.
When a lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her: “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!”
This is called “Being Professional” Focus only on what you are trained to do!
When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA-trained) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in primary school): “Big brother, let’s count how much we got.”
The older robber rebutted and said: “You are very stupid. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. Tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!”
This is called “Experience.” Nowadays, experience is more important than paper qualifications!
After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. But the supervisor said to him: “Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.
This is called “Swim with the tide.” Converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!
The supervisor says: “It will be good if there is a robbery every month.”
This is called “Killing Boredom.” Personal Happiness is more important than your job.
The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count $20 million. The robbers were very angry and complained: “We risked our lives and only took $20 million. The bank manager took $80 million with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated than to be a thief!”
This is called “Knowledge is worth as much as gold!”
The bank manager was smiling and happy because his losses in the share market are now covered by this robbery.
This is called “Seizing the opportunity.” Daring to take risks!
So who are the real robbers here?
Wow… If you don’t read this, you’re wilding.
This is rather relevant to how I ended up in my job position…
I just can’t do plastic. Be busted, it’s fine. Just be genuine.
I am the Jakal aka The Law of Fordham aka JK47 aka KampFlow.
Though the rain may enter, the crown may not.
