As someone that has a JD and is a practicing attorney...I would have to absolutely agree. People seem to forget the LLB. At one point in American history students could obtain an LLB instead of a JD. In the majority of countries in the world that's still the case. So instead of 7 "years" of schooling it was more like 3 or 4. I learned a ton in class. However, the real world experience you get from internships/etc. is hands down more important. In his speech he stated that the 3rd year could/should be replaced by a year of on-the-job training type stuff. In theory, a shorter law school curriculum benefits everyone.
