Excerpt from The Counsellor, 1892-1893, Vol. 2 Your education by books and by the teacher's exposition 11d also to be sup plemented by the practical management of affairs. His first case, if it be only be fore a justice's court, teaches a young lawyer the act of practice much more vividly than he could acquire it from the books. A defeat or two in his lawsuits may be of great service in stimulating him to more careful preparation. He gains confidence in himself by success, he learns how to present a case with increas ing skill and judgment, and so acquires self-reliance. A young lawyer once told me that the best lesson he ever learned was to stop running to the older lawyers in whose office he was, for advice or infor mation, and to study out things by him self. He came to realize, he said, that he had all the means and facilities they pos sessed to gain the knowledge desired, and that it was much more satisfactory to go to the original sources for himself. The lawyer's experience is much the same as that of a physician. However learned a medical student may become in the schools, there is nothing like his actual practice afterwards at the bedside to make him a skilful physician. So the lawyer must deal with actual men and their con troversies to become the wise counselor. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
