In a long, long rant published on the ABA Journal's website, famed legal writing deity Bryan Garner accuses the vast majority of attorneys of being sorry scribes. He supports this proposition by citing the Dunning-Kruger effect, a well-known psychological principle that can be summed up in a few words:
The more you suck at something, the better you think you are, especially in relation to others.
Wait, so Garner is saying lawyers are arrogant about their abilities? Color us shocked - and mildly insulted to boot.
