Law schools must begin recognizing the damage that is being caused to interpersonal relationships and our overall society, due to the low EQ levels of those involved in the field of law and make a concerted effort to address this extremely serious problem.

In the social media world, we communicate briefly without full sentences and offer quick letter combos (LOL) that further discourage open dialogue with any complexity.
