Those who cant, teach!
In medical education, the apprentice principle is in high regard. That is to say, you want to get your residents out working with those in the field who are actually working. It is one thing to have lectures by researchers, but it is much better to be out in the field working with those in the trenches. This has led to the attitude that the ones who are good at the actual job are the ones doing the job. Those that suck, sit in auditoriums and teach. That little bit of Dogma got me thinking. Our President taught Constitutional law, but the law that he proposed, pushed and signed was declared unconstitutional. I guess, the principle that "those who cant, teach!" is true for attorneys as well
