Description

Malcolm challenges his assistant Camille to the Law School Admissions Test. He gets halfway through, panics, runs out of time, and wonders: why does the legal world want him to rush?

one reason is of course because we pay bu the hour. not by result. although I admit in some US systemt, no cure no pay, it is.

Good episode. I wasn't sure why Malcolm insisted that decisions about time limits (LSAT, chess) are arbitrary. I don't see why that is necessarily true. Presumably there may be valid reasons for the selected time limits. Off the top of my head (and this may be a poor suggestion on my part), it may be related to how well a candidate or player performs under pressure. I suppose you could say 35 minutes specifically is an arbitrary number but it would have a specific purpose (to apply pressure), and honestly unlimited time is as arbitrary as a specific time limit.

Thank you so much for covering this topic! I grew up living the hare mentality, and managed to navigate it well. But, as I enter my late 30's and further my career, I find much more value in adopting the tortoise mentality. Great decisions require time to process and examine, especially when the stakes are high. Having passed, every timed, standardized test I have ever taken, the only award I have to show you is my ability to navigate complex issues quickly. Some call this efficiency, and I do know there are times that this skill is useful. However, I always emerge from the other side, knowing I could have done better... if only I had more time Please keep it coming Malcolm. I am always willing to wait... Cheers, J. Malek Boise, ID

Malcolm - for the sake of science and curiosity, what was your LSAT score?
