    so old fashioned. so virginia. instead of indicating with data or other persuasive argument why volunteer attorneys are necessary, an appeal to a 1950’s southern ‘gentleman’ ideal. “stand up . . . your father’s passin'”?

    and “most famous movie hero of all time”? what about darth vader (who is also a more realistic role model)? it may be worth joining just to see what they come up with next.

    Wait… Darth Vader was the *hero*?? Damn. A year and a half of law school and I’m *still* obviously not thinking like a lawyer. :)

    The true lawyer’s role model from Star Wars is obviously Obi-wan: “these aren’t the discoverable documents you’re looking for.”
