Law school in six words: "You'll get hired. So they claimed."
In an effort to teach concise writing skills, legal writing professor Lisa Mazzie tasked her students at Marquette University Law School with crafting a story in just six words.
The Wall Street Journal's Law Blog took on the task of writing a few six-word anecdotes about law school:
• For sale: law degree, no promises.
• Three years later, they weren't ready.
• $200,000, 24 B+'s, first-year associate.
• You'll get hired. So they claimed.
• 'But I'm tenured!' the professor replied.
• The former dean pleaded not guilty.
