Explaining the law in simple terms

By July 25, 2007law

I love this post by patent attorney Erik Heels.  He uses a drawing he made for his daughter to explain why law school doesn’t help lawyers solve practical problems.  Moreover, his explanation of the legal system is simple, concise and yet (in my view) completely accurate.  The money quote: "one of the good things about spending time with children is that it forces you to explain things in simple terms."

Indeed.  More lawyers should work with young children to develop their communication skills.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
