    “I know that many even inside the legal profession question whether it remains a profession or is now just a business and all about the bottom line.” — the question here is whether one’s looking at it normatively or positively. Normatively, I entirely agree with your position. From a positive perspective, perhaps the flag is still flying, but it’s definitely in tatters. The prominence of Chicago School economic thinking among law school faculty might be accelerating that shredding process, though the bigger contribution comes from the way market economics has hijacked the ethos of American society itself.

    A.J.: Thank you for the comment. It will be interesting to see how the profession responds, particularly given the increasing use of outsourcing and packaging of legal products. Best regards, Michelle.
