Young Lawyer Skills Development - What are your thoughts?

If an overwhelming percentage (greater than 90% by some estimates) of civil

young lawyer skills development by law firms, bar associations, and others invested
in the civil justice system?

Please provide your thoughts/comments below.

Thank you to Harold Coleman of AAA Mediation.org for this week's question.
