The Lawyer as Apprentice: Legal Education in Eighteenth Century Massachusetts
McKirdy, Charles R.
Journal of Legal Education, 28, 2, 124-36, 76
The system of legal clerkships in early Massachusetts is described from the writings of John Adams and others. Ideally, the clerkship placed the student in an environment of law where education was a total and many faceted experience. In reality, the student endured many difficulties and spent most of his time copying papers. (LBH)
