What would you guess is the percentage of state legislators who are lawyers in a typical large state? I just received my March 2007 edition of the Michigan Bar Journal, and was taken aback. Only 22 of 148 (or 14.8%) Michigan state legislators are lawyers. Moreover, this is consistent with the average since 1971, which is 14.1%. I cannot think of a witty conclusion for this bit of trivia.
