Today's New Blawg

Dispositive is written by a law student somewhere north of Manhattan [via], who ably identifies one of the high ironies of law school:

After you learn to determine the economic theory or public policy which the professor assures you lies just underneath the surface of every case (if you look just a little harder. . .), exams come. And exams only test you on the rules you stopped looking for because your professor didn't seem to think they were very soundly reasoned anyway.

As for making "the process more open and less shrouded in mystery" (see the end of that post), my sense is Dispositive's author is on the right track.
