Ignored Dicta

When attorneys are with the Judge in chambers before a conference starts inevitably, conversations begin. Unsurprisingly, these chats are small talk about life, the legal profession and each persons family.

The judge, being you know, judgely takes center stage in this chitchat session. Yesterday, the judge I was with dropped a nugget of advice to all potential lawyers out there:

"My daughter is a first year law student out east. I begged and pleaded with her not to go to law school but she didn't's not like I know anything..."
I might have fallen out of my chair laughing at that point.
