[Extract] In the 1973 film The Paper Chase, Harvard law professor Charles W Kingsfield Jr (played by John Houseman) tells his students: "you teach yourselves the law. I train your minds. You come in there with a skull of mush, and if you survive, you'll leave thinking like a lawyer." Learning how to think like a lawyer has since become one of the more frequently identified objectives of legal education, particularly in the United States but also here in Australia.
