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.
