Lawyers as snobs

A very nice rant on lawyers and snobbery over at Civil Procedure (despite the dig at HLS summer associates — justified or not, I’m not sure) with some back-and-forth at EthicalEsq.  “Our profession worships credentials.”  Prof. Bainbridge picks up the thread and extends the argument from the legal profession to legal academics, in which he talks about rankings as “signals.”  Economists love signals.  Fun weekend reading.
