The ABA Journal recently posed a question that I’m sure many a lawyer and many a graduating law student have been asked: “If you could start from scratch, would you opt to take the LSAT and go to law school?”

Unfortunately, life is nothing like it is in the movies.
In real life, we live with the consequences of our actions.
