Most lawyers are actor wannabees. They wanted to be the celebrity walking the red carpet but quickly realized if they didn’t start their fallback career (law) they would be serving burgers at In-N-Out for the rest of their lives.
Once they make the jump to law school the excitement is the oral arguments! The wannabee actors are playing the role of a lawyer, arguing for a fake client, and using those improv skills they have spent thousands of dollars on.
On this Episode of The Best of Mr. Law School, watch Sam E. Goldberg in his Civil Pre-Trial Litigation course arguing to set aside a default judgment. (First 5 minutes is the argument and then the professor’s comments.)
