    It's been a long known fact that lawyers are not taught how to run their businesses once they get out of law school. They are taught the philosophy and certain cases regarding law but are left to the wolves in terms of running the business. A management class or even a free elective on certain subjects would help them in long run. A lawyer who knows how to sue a business but doesn't know how to run it is not the ideal situation. http://www.legalfunding.com/
