As I sit at the window of my home office, I can hear and see small flocks of law professors passing overhead, going south in the hope of advising the new administration. Well feathered with footnotes, they are insulated against the chilly economic climate. Law professors are sometimes confused with a closely related species, lawyers. Adding to the confusion is the juvenile form of the law professor, the Supreme Court clerk, which closely resembles the lawyer. Lawyers may be readily identified by their sleek dark plumage, courtesy, and fancy cars, and they generally aggregate in large numbers at the break of day. Law professors may be distinguished by their drab plumage, solitary habits, abstracted air, and long monologues. Lawyers and economists readily share nesting and feeding grounds, but there may be some concern that the law professors will displace the economists from their favorite nesting sites, for they are a more aggressive and territorial species. All three species, lawyers, economist, and law professors, are distinguished by their large bills.
