You just made a strong argument for articling programs. There's been a lot of pressure on our regulators here in Canada to reduce or remove these programs entirely. Here in Ontario, it's a 10 month program. During that period, law graduates (not yet called to the bar) are exposed to the practice of law. In firms that do litigation, the hope is that they will have supervised conduct of a small claims or minor criminal trial. Reality isn't always that, but at least it's something.

I agree. Here in the States, most Law Schools have trial practice programs where students work with States Attorney or Public Defender programs while in school. Somewhat like apprentice training. Not mandatory, though. Pretty scary to think that some of these graduates aren't ready.
