Do Lawyers Collaborate (And Don't Law Schools Teach Them Not To)?

As part of Law.com's Blog Watch, here, the prolific and always insightful lawyer-blogger Carolyn Elefant asks whether lawyers are behind the curve of other industries in maximizing collaboration, or even setting up offices and work structures to encourage that.  She also wonders whether law schools encourage lone-wolf mentality and let atrophe some useful collaboration skills.  Fair question.  And she elsewhere posts a nice story and links about Burn-Out and the Practice of Law.  One study suggests that part of the solution is encouraging pro bono work.
