Divergent Law

Fans of the book (or movie) Divergent will like this.  Envisioning a future law school curriculum of

 five fields of legal study, which will be organized into "factions":  Abnegation, which will focus on public interest work and "street law;" Amity, which will focus on dispute resolution; Erudite, which will focus on the most cerebral of legal work, corporate, securities and tax law; Candor, which will focus on governmental agency work; and Dauntless, which will focus on litigation.  Each field of study will require different lengths of training.  Dauntless training will be completed in three months by zip-lining from the Sears Tower through downtown Chicago.  Erudite training will take six years and take place exclusively indoors.
