This Article argues that practicing attorneys have a need for academics to bring the their legal approaches back to a sense of reality. The author makes this argument by giving three examples of personal experience at a recent symposium sponsored by the University of Arizona College of Law, entitled "The Future Structure and Regulation of Law Practice." The author claims that sometimes practitioners are blinded by their own traditions and refused to consider new and better approaches. Academics who have less at stake in existing traditions are more willing to consider new solutions.
