Specifically, this Commentary examines how and why the systematic training of a lawyer is inferior to that of a doctor in several ways. The author generally questions the adequacy of the current legal teaching method and how it effects law students' perceptions of themselves. This Commentary identifies the problem while its companion piece offers a solution.
