Do Judges Have A Bias Favoring The Legal Profession?

There is a new article that raises a question that I find both interesting and relevant to my concerns about the legal profession's prerogative of self-regulation. The thesis is that there is a systematic bias favoring the interests of the legal profession that permeates judicial decisionmaking. Kudos to Prof. Benjamin Barton of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville College of Law for his exploration of this issue.  (Mike Frisch)
