Abstract:     
The common view that there are too many lawyers who compete to divide up an ever-shrinking American pie is factually wrong and professionally destructive. Lawyers are pie-makers. They are economic drivers. Legal education produces higher quality human capital that increases gross domestic product. Lawyers increase economic productivity. The responsible professional view is that legal services are a value-add for individuals, families, businesses, and government.
