Law School Aptitude Test
So you wonder why your lawyer thinks the way he does? You wonder if they are a different breed from ordinary humans? You may be right, maybe they are.
Look at this, and see how they sort the riff from the raff.
Do you have the talent to be a lawyer? I think it is a bit similar to the difference between top-of-the-head quick-on-the-feet actor improvisation (lawyers?), and the more plodding research-based approach of the serious actor (Judges?). And only Robin Williams and Dan Aykroyd come to mind as individuals who seem to be able to cross over easily.
Therein, perhaps, lies the yawning chasm between you and the thought processes of your lawyer.
