Neal Katyal and the Depravity of Big Law

In a 1995 history of legal specialization, Michael S. Ariens described what he considered “a transformation in lawyers’ understanding of the reasons justifying their position in society.” In the nineteenth century, lawyers justified their stature by distinguishing the profession of law from a mere trade. One pillar of professionalism was treating the practice of law as a science and not a mere skill.

First published at The Outline. In case you missed it — and there’s a lot of weird stuff going on, so it makes sense that some things would slip through the cracks — aliens exist. At least that’s what military officials and major politicians believe, according to a New York Times report from December that the Pentagon gave $22 million to aerospace research firms to investigate the UFO phenomenon.

They have acted consistently with their convictions about the coming Last Days in ways that make their prophecies appear to be self-fulfilling. Given the history of the region, the long-standing ethnic and religious hatreds there, and the attempt of many nations, both Western and Arab, to carry out their own purposes in the Holy Land, it is easy to imagine the current impasse even if dispensationalist views had never existed. But these views have existed for a long time; and they have had their effects on generations of Bible believers in America and elsewhere. As Paul Boyer has pointed out, dispensationalism has effectively conditioned millions of Americans to be somewhat passive about the future and provided them with lenses through which to understand world events.

Signals thus evolve because they modify the behaviour of the receiver to benefit the signaller. Signals may be honest, conveying information which usefully increases the fitness of the receiver, or dishonest. An individual can cheat by giving a dishonest signal, which might briefly benefit that signaller, at the risk of undermining the signalling system for the whole population. The same mechanisms can be expected in humans, where researchers have studied behaviours including risk taking by young men, hunting of large game animals, and costly religious rituals, finding that these appear to qualify as costly honest signals.

The state has tracked 76 cases so far, and it could be on its way to the front lines of the fight for mandatory vaccination. Lawmakers who want to implement stricter vaccination rules could look to California, where a 2014 measles outbreak at Disneyland inspired a bill barring parents who don’t vaccinate their children for religious or ideological reasons from sending those children to public school. The measure faced significant opposition from anti-vaccination activists, but its sponsor attributed its success to two powerful allies: a compelling mathematical model and vocal support from pro-vaccine parents. The bill went into effect last summer, and vaccination rates have since rebounded. Measles is a highly contagious and potentially deadly viral infection. That method helped in California.
