Lookie! I'm thinking like a lawyer!

I was just printing out an article for a professor and happened to read the first sentence or so:

"Law professors often tell first-year students that they should concentrate less on learning the rules of a particular subject, such as property or contracts, and more on the elusive goal of 'thinking like a lawyer.' Entering students, whose impressions of law school may have been shaped by popular culture, often believe their teachers."

Something about that pop culture bit got me thinking... Let me try this.

"Dammit, the ethics committee called again. My assistant is hot. I wonder what I can do today to piss my boss off. I think I'll drink some Scotch."

No, dammit, that's just thinking like Jack McCoy.

This would have been a better entry if I had written a bunch of those and let you guess who I was thinking like, but unfortunately I've just realized that that's really just about it for me and TV lawyers. Now, if they were cops...
