In re: Make law school optional?

Interesting article by a George B. Shepherd, a law professor at Emory, on why they should do away with bar exams which he declares a failed experiment and similarly with the requirment of law school, which he believes isn’t necessary for all types of attorneys. Those wishing to practice ‘Mercedes’ law should go get a ‘Mercedes’ degree but those wanting to practice in simple areas may only need an apprenticeship or a ‘Corolla’ law degree which might be 1 year. Interesting as it would be a more free market answer, of course as a learned profession or supposedly learned one the ABA like to remain a gatekeeper and to keep the profession at a certain level.
