In the Dukeminier and Krier PROPERTY book there is a footnote about John
Marshall having only a few weeks of legal training (i.e., he had no formal
legal education, let alone the fact that he wasn't a formal lawyer).
Also, you may want to check out:
this site discusses the bio of Bob Katzmann who recently was appointed to
the second circuit. while he has a J.D. (as well as a Ph.D) and did a
federal clerkship, since then he has been a pure (and in fact wonderful)
academic who was tapped to be on the fed. appellate court. (i'm not even
sure if he took a bar. As you know, there are several fed. clerks out there
whose judges don't require that).
Hope this helps,
All the best, Jay Krishnan, William Mitchell College of Law.
