The [Non]Billable Hour has a weekly feature called "Five By Five" in which five bloggers are asked to list five things. This week the question was, "If you had the power to change five things about the practice of law, what would you change?" Everyone in the group has at least one suggestion that I completely endorse, but I like Ernest Svenson's list best.

My five would include a change in emphasis from "winning is everything" to working for the just result; greater transparency in the process; an increased willingness to adopt practices and procedures from other legal systems; a return to a culture of community and mentoring within the profession; and a better connection between legal education and the practice of law, including an emphasis on the ongoing relevance of legal education and its institutions to the every day stuff that we engage in.
