it's amazing how many experts – on everything from politics to human psychology – hang out here.

7. Nope, just a law student
...though one who is doing quite well, I might add.

Being a law student, however, doesn't mean I know less than someone who has passed the bar, as sad as that may sound. You would be amazed at how many lawyers and judges I've encountered who really have no business practicing or serving on the bench.

When you have to explain the concept of dictum to a state appellate court judge during a Moot Court Competition, something is terribly wrong with the state of our legal system.

But I digress. I deleted that original message because it might be taken as an insult by some of those legal laymen who have attempted to expound on the law. Please don't.

8. I'm studying the LSAT.
I have a degree in philosophy. I don't have much of a choice but to be a lawyer.

9. We Are Not Experts By Any Means
More observant than most with honest opinions to convey?

10. I've been hired as an expert witness a few times.
Truly the easiest money I ever made.

Just tell the attorneys what they want to hear, no matter what it is, and they throw cash at you with both hands ;-).
