Mike Rowe Tells the ABA to Go Fuck Itself

Posted in Uncategorized on November 20th, 2010 by bl1y

Not really.

But, Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame) has teamed up with Go Build Alabama to create a video discussing the importance of skilled labor and how college isn’t the only way to get an education and move ahead in the world.  He doesn’t denigrate college education, but instead just argues for the value of “alternatives,” you know, like the things that used to be the only way to actually get educated.  Like doing things. Or working with a mentor. Or the other stuff ABA accredited law schools have only recently discovered. Yeah, that’s right, your Social Theory, the Humanities, and Philosophy Now class, or Creative Writing Workshop for Lawyers don’t actually train people to be attorneys.  Maybe your problems in teaching people how to do things has something to do with your Law and Society specialists outnumbering your faculty specializing in Trusts and Estates, Trial Advocacy and Skills Training, Copyright, and Mergers and Acquisitions …combined.

But, maybe not.

Anyways, I didn’t find an embeddable YouTube version of the video, so you’ll have to do this the old fashioned way, and just click on the link and then watch the video there.  And you know you want to.  It’s freaking Mike Rowe.  I mean, he’s basically the blue collar version of the World’s Most Interesting Man.
