Law in Contemporary Society

Personal Introduction

-- By CMcKinney? - 29 Jan 2015

I hope to leave law school with a sharper mind and a broader understanding of diverse viewpoints. Studying the law can involve a high degree of critical thinking, and I think that one can lead a more fulfilling, worthwhile life once he has developed that skill. On the second point, I attended a fairly homogeneous university, and I believe Columbia is a good place to expand one’s horizons – particularly because it attracts a student body from many walks of life.

If that last statement were true, we would have many more people here from working-class backgrounds. We look much more diverse than we are.

Studying law can indeed involve a high degree of critical thinking, but only if you are critical of law school. By itself, unchallenged, it produces no such thing.
