While there is a certain need for practical skills in the law school cirriculum, Segal's piece misses the mark in a number of areas. First, 1L cirriculum does present theoretical knowledge, but this knowledge is important to understanding the overall picture of law. With limited theoretical learning, a student might understand how to read a contract, but miss the nuances of Contracts. There are no "skills" classes that will teach a student everything he/she needs to know before starting law, that is what practice is for.
