Oops — Thanks to reader e-mail, I just learned that I had accidentally turned off comments on my post yesterday about the differences between studying engineering and law. (I drafted most of this post several weeks ago, and for some reason the VC software seems to set comments to closed when you put a draft in storage for a while. I know this has happened before, but once again I forgot about it.) Anyway, I have just opened comments, so comment away, throw rotten fruit, etc., if you’re interested. Sorry about the confusion.
One more thought; please note that the topic of the post is the difference between studying engineering and studying law, not the difference between practicing engineering and practicing law. That is, I’m trying to explore how a student encounters the two subjects; that’s the question that I often receive from prospective law students who are/were engineering students in college. How the two two fields differ from a practitioner’s perspective is a terrific question, but wasn’t what I was getting at in my post. (Of course, feel free to discuss it in the comment thread if you find it interesting.)
