Chemerinsky said Lemley and the recall campaign are cherry picking six cases out of Persky’s 15-year career as a judge. During that time he has handled more than 2,000 cases. Chemerinsky also said by recalling Persky judges will constantly be looking over their shoulder and handing down harsher sentences, which will likely affect Latinos and African American defendants more than white defendants.

In sum, if you haven’t been _________ (fill in the blank with a legal specialty or title) you don’t qualify to ever practice it. Again, in my head I perfected an answer that I rarely articulated: “Litigators/Fortune 500 lawyers/startup lawyers/general counsel/etc. are not born, they are made.”
